Callie from My Something New With You

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Today I have a special treat for ya!  Callie is over here from her blog My Something New With You talking about the L-word.  Callie is so sweet and I love her heart.  I hope you enjoy her post and I encourage you to hop on over and say hello!


Hello dear friends of the gorgeous Mrs. Lopatka!  Isn’t she just a doll!? I absolutely love this girl and I was soooo excited when she asked me to guest post on her blog so I hope you don’t mind me tip toeing in today!          

My name is Callie and I am the girl behind the blog,  My Something New With You. From the title of my blog, I can bet your guessing I’m one of those silly newlyweds who just learned butter can literally explode in the microwave if left unattended! Well you guessed it, I’ve had my share of clean ups and unmentionable ruins after only seven months of marriage, but these little moments are ones that I cherish so dearly and I love to share as much as I can with my readers because quite frankly: they are usually pretty hilarious! I chose the name for my blog from the old saying “ my something old, my something new, my something borrowed, my something blue”. And since my named “husby” Garrett and I just recently got married in June, our marriage is “my something new” and I’ll be sharing it with YOU along the way. Catchy, I know!

Since the month of all things mushy and corny love gooeyness has stumbled upon us once again, what subject better to talk about than the big four letter word! Love has been around a long time hasn’t it? It’s hard to think of being without actually! And if you haven’t found it yet, you can barely wait to find it, am I right!? So before I sway off the main topic, let me tell you what the topic we’re aiming for is… before I miss, and friends this is one you don’t want to miss! It’s soo good!!

How to Keep a Relationship your Top Priority:
Now as I have told you before, my husband and I have only been married seven months, that may seem like only baby steps leading to a topic this big to some, but the way I think of it is: If you know and practice your priorities from the very beginning of a relationship, those little ways you have incorporated into your commitment can only get sturdier with time. And that’s the bible of the blues, can I get an amen!?

While I was dwelling upon this topic in my quiet time, I tried to think of ways to keep a relationship top priority, but all I could think about were “our ways” of keeping each other top priority (as in reference of my husband and I’s.) Things like:  How my husband and I choose to still get all dressed up to go on dates and such (just me and him) together, keeping little traditions that we’ve built along the way going, and trying our best to keep God first along the way. But after I really thought about it, every relationship is different, unique in it’s own very way. I don’t believe there’s a sequence of events or book of guidelines to help create a great relationship. You just simply have to find what works and what doesn’t in YOUR relationship with ONE ANOTHER, and after you do that, you have got it sister! One thing I like to do is ask myself each day: what can I do to make my husband smile today?? Whether you like to surprise your special one with his favorite desserts ( or in my case usually burn’t ones) and mushy hidden love notes, or would rather keep things simple and breezy, it’s your Love and as long as you tickle each others heart strings that is all that matters my deary, and that is clearly undoubtfully Love!

I have truly enjoyed this time with you all, and thanks to the lovely Denise for having me on the blog! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day and feel free to come visit me anytime, I'm just a blog away!!
