    I am here as a result of your being a follower of your Mom’s page. Is there any chance that you could make your page more easy to read (by older eyes that not near as good as they used to be) by making the print darker?

      Hey! I’ve had a couple people say the same thing! I will refer this to my IT department and see what we can do 😉
      (Kayla is the IT department, I’ll ask her)

      Hi Kalissa!
      (I don’t think my post ever showed up!)
      I’ve enjoyed catching up with “The Pink Shoelaces”, and look forward to your new posts!

    Yep, I’m here from your Mom’s blog! I love reading her blog and now I’m going to be a follower of your blog.
    Your blog on how you named your blog had me in tears by the end. What a special person Jack was.

  3. Cherie in St Louis says:

    Yes, I’m here because of your mom ;-). I’ve enjoyed your posts so far and definitely needed a Kleenex when reading about Jack.

    Yes, your mom sent me. And am I ever glad. Love the blog about the pink shoe laces girl. You really touched his heart. What a good friend you are.

    Your mom’s blog is the only one that I read EVERY day.
    I’m a stay at home gramma, farm wife and quilter. So we have a lot in common.
    Your mom has sent me three quilts that I have bound and donated to Sharehouse, a place that helps addicted alcohol and drug users.

    Last year I joined a Quilts of Valor group, which takes up a lot of my free time.

    I like the blog and the recipe looks great. One suggestion . . . the gray type is hard to read. Even when I increased it to 150% on my computer screen.

    I love following Jo and all the Kramers. Looking forward to what else you might post.

    I follow your mom’s blog since the time of your dad’s diagnosis. My husband around that time had passed away from cancer too, he was 67yrs young . I knew exactly what your mom was going through. I journaled through my life sure isn’t easy. I too am a nurse , worked for 47 years in the operating room and just retired 19 months ago. I too quilt like your mom, it has been my escape from a lot of life and feel so productive instead of being in sorrow all the time. I sure enjoy reading about all of your life adventures. Keep doing what you are doing , spread goodness through your career, your patients will remember and appreciate. It’s the small things you do. Fran

    Hi from the Cedar Valley! Your mom did send me. 🙂 I’m a quilter who met her and Kelli at a quilt store I worked at. Looking forward to all the things you share.

    Hi Kalissa! I’m a CCRN and have been following your Mom for years. Your pink shoelaces story brought me to tears and it IS right at the heart of why I became a nurse. Bless you for giving of your time and sharing your life.

  9. Donna T says:

    Yes I found your blog from your mom! I have been following her for probably 5-6 years. Her blog is my absolute favorite! I have learned so much about quilting but also enjoy reading about her day to day life. I feel like I know your entire family from her blog! You have the cutest kids and the nicest husband. I love seeing what Craig and Jo do with the yard! I currently live in Prague, CZ for my husband’s job. We move a lot for his job but I always take my stash of fabric and sewing machines and that keeps me busy! I have been quilting about 25 years but only seriously the last 12-15. Good luck with your blog!

  10. Heidi S says:

    Your Momma sent me! I’m a retired nurse so your lovely new blog will be a great fit. The pink shoelace story had me in tears.

    • Paula Nordt says:

      Yes, I read about your blog on your mom’s. You made me cry with your post about your “adopted” grandpa. Now I have two great blogs to read.

  11. Tama Putthoff says:

    Yep, I am a follower of your mom’s blog. It’s the best!! I grew up on a farm in NW Missouri and moved to KC for college. Fell in love with the city and a met the most wonderful guy. We’ve been married 37 years. WooHoo! I’m retired now so quilting, reading and traveling are my hobbies. Life is good. Looking forward to reading your blog! Take care and have a great week.

  12. Susan Smit says:

    Yes I am and love now both your blogs. Your mums blog is what makes my day every day. Thank you for sharing your life too as I know its not an easy one.

    Yes I’m here from your mom’s blog. I’ve followed her for years. I’m a retired nurse so I understand how hard it is to be a working nurse and a wife and mother. I graduated from nursing school 42 years ago. My has nursing practice and medicine changed yet at the same time the much of core nursing has remained the same. What I learned raising 2 sons who have grown into amazing men who are husbands, fathers, firefighter EMTs, and valued employees is that growing up with a mother who is happy and fulfilled made their lives happier. I tried being a stay at home mom and was miserable. Yes I missed them and it was hard to leave but all of us were happier.

  14. Maureen says:

    Yes, I follow your mom’s blog every day and love keeping up with the latest news on your families. Very happy for you that you are a blogger now too!?

  15. Denise in PA says:

    Hi Kalissa, I, too, found you through your Mom’s blog. I’ve been reading for years and feel like I know all of you! You are such a wonderful writer – your blog is terrific. I’ve subscribed through Feedly so I won’t miss a post!

  16. Carol Andrews says:

    Hi Kalissa. Yes I’ve been a follower of your Mom’s blogs g forever and love keeping up with the Kramer journey through life. I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, Quilter and love life. I try to find that ray of sunshine every day and really enjoy finding new to me blogs to read and enjoy!

  17. Janet R says:

    Yes I’m here from your mom’s blog. My family is full of nurses, so I have some insight hearing about it. Your er experience is different, though. I’m looking forward to all you have to say 🙂

    I’m also here after reading about your blog on Jo’s blog. I’m a reader from northern Indiana, my husband and I are dairy farmers. I have 9 grandchildren, two which live next door to me. One of those boys is a month older than Carver. Have a great day, your patients need you. Grandmothers are great for filling in when mom and dad can’t be there.

  19. Carmela says:

    Hi Kalissa,

    Yes your mom sent me :). I am relatively new to your mom’s blog as well and love all the good advice she puts out. Am happy you have started a blog (something I’ve always wanted to do – but don’t think I have anything to say ;)). Wishing you good luck and thanks for sharing a part of you with us all!!

      I LOVE blogging! Something I’ve started and stopped and started many times over the years! I highly recommend reading “Girl, Stop Apologizing” by Rachel Hollis – it gave me the OOMPH I needed to finally suck it up and GO FOR IT! I’m so glad I did!

    I follow your mom’s blog and now yours. I’m a 58 year old mom of 21 year-old twins and a 17 year-old. I’m a quilter and I’m TRYING to get my house in order. I’m a fan of Dana K. White, too, and I think I first read about her at your mom’s blog. 🙂
