Four Years Ago

Four years ago today, Gersel Marina Kramer became Isabella Gersel Kramer when her Ohio adoption was finalized. Four years! I am tearing right now.

One Year Ago Today

One year ago today we lost a dear family member. We still talk about her and cry for her. We still long to cuddle with her and stroke her soft fur. We will never forget.

Below is the post from last year and the video we made to share with our friends and family. Hug your pets today!

Dear Kalli,
I didn't tell you enough how much I love you. I didn't tell you enough how sitting with you calmed me. I didn't tell you how you were my first baby and I loved you like you were my very own. I'm sorry I didn't tell you these things but I hope you knew them.

Petting your head and back. Sloppy kisses. Those deep, dark brown eyes. Cuddling on the couch. Laying in bed. I'll miss you. We'll all miss you.

You lived a full life in your 10 years with us. You went on vacations, had doggy sleep-overs, woodsy walks and snacks galore. You were loved by many and missed by more.

We will always cherish our time with you, Buddha. We'll never forget!

Welcome 2010!

So many things happen in the course of a year, some great and some sad. 2009 was no different. I won't bore everyone with a rehash of the Kramers' 2009, but I wanted to take a moment as the first day of 2010 draws to a close to reflect on these now memories. And while time continues on, I will carry these memories forward.

Happy New Year!

Here's to a wonderfully blessed 2010!
Kevin, Jennifer and Isabella Kramer
