Peace Maker

Jordan holds Finn like this about 20 times a day. He only likes it for a second and then, well, you can tell by the expression on his face right there.

I have been meaning to write this down for awhile but the time has gotten away from me. Jordan brings much of the peace in our home. I learned this was a trait in him not long after we met. It doesn't take long to know him and feel it. I am an incessant worrier. I think I often come off like I don't care about much or not a lot phases me, but trust me that is not the case. You can blame my "always bored" looking face for that. Whenever I am really stressed about something, I have to remind myself to just talk to my husband. It quickly calms my fears and makes me feel better.

Finn, as you might be able to guess, is also a bit of a worrier. He is wary of much and has a hard time relaxing. Shortly after we got him, I noticed that Finn calmed down faster when Jordan was home. I don't know why this should surprise me. It only makes sense that he recognizes the peace that Jordan brings.

I am so incredibly blessed to have this man in my life. He calms my anxieties.


  1. i am the worrier over here, too. oh, and finn is the most handsome cat that there ever (ever) was.

    1. Thank you! For some reason that means a lot to me coming from you :)

  2. I love this so much! Though I'm not much of a worrier, I do sometimes. And with my, I always hold everything in. (http://www.rachelnicoleblog.com/2013/10/this-isnt-just-normal-update-post-its.html)
    I don't like sharing, and at this point there is no one I feel like I can share with.
    I hope eventually to get married, and have the kind of relationship you have, because it sounds comforting to be able to share everything and not carry it all alone.

    Really like this one, Bri!


  3. Yay for good husbands and the good people in our lives who have this magical calming power. It really is like a super power isn't it?! This photo reminds me so much of us and our cats. Even if Finn doesn't like being cradled now, it really will help with his anxiety to be held regularly like that. Well, that's what we've found with our cat who used to be incredibly nervous all the time. She has improved so much because of the cat hugs. They really do let them know they can trust you!

  4. This is truly the best! I melted seeing this on your IG. <3 My husband is very much the same. I stress and stress (you're not alone girl), and I can be having the worst day, worst attitude, and Dilan just makes it fade away. It's weird, but I can never really be mad at him either. It's a trait I wish I had, but glad that he fills that in me. Blessed we are!

  5. I am so blessed to have my husband too. I definitely feel the same way. I am a really anxious person and thank heavens he isnt! He always makes everything better! :) Glad your husband is so wonderful!
