We’ve seen plenty of photos of country music’s favorite men spending the holidays with their fathers and sons fishing and hunting. And while we know plenty of country girls that can bring down a duck or deer, too, we have wondered what other activities country folk participate in during the chilly winter months. Jana Kramer just answered our question, and she did it in the most precious way.
Now, Jana hails from Michigan, which is also known as the Water Winter Wonderland, so you might suspect that she spent some time on the ice in her youth. And you would be right.
It also appears that she’d like to instill in her adorable little girl the same love and skill.
Jana shared a video on her socials of Jolie making her way around the ice-skating rink on the tiniest little skates we’ve ever seen. And although Jana is close behind to make sure her toddler comes to no harm, Jolie seems pretty independent with the exception of a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer skating trainer she uses to pull herself up on.
In the caption of the photo, Jana writes, “I grew up figure skating … so this moment is everything to me right now … #mygirl #myskatergirl.”
Ah! Like Mommy, like baby? It sure looks that way, since even when she nearly falls, Jolie is grinning from ear to ear. And she isn’t the only one. Jana can be heard saying, “Proudest mom moment ever right now.”
We aren’t sure if this is Jolie’s first time on the ice or not, but she’s showing a fearlessness that looks like it could lead to triple axels in a few years.
What a sweet memory they’re making, and what a great way for Jana to wrap up a year that hasn’t been without its challenges.
In early December, the country singer-songwriter shared the heartbreaking news that she had suffered a miscarriage. But, even sadder, she admits that it wasn’t her first. In an Instagram post, Jana shared an inspiring message that truly conveys her strength in an incredibly difficult situation and also serves as an inspiration for other women who have gone through the pain and devastation of that loss.
Today I am 1-3. I debated posting this for the exact reason why it’s a silent struggle. I don’t want I’m sorry or sympathy. I just don’t want to feel alone. And I know I’m not. This unfortunately isn’t my first loss. When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don’t tell many, we have to suffer silently…and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it’s not now. For the women out there who have miscarried in the past and need support and a place to grieve their little one lost or to those in the thick of it like me who are currently grieving and in pain, let us all be there for each other. You don’t need to feel alone and maybe that’s me talking to myself but if you need a place to share, I’m here for you…and all of us are (and guys too. We sometimes silence your voice because you feel bad to express how it’s made u feel so let this be a safe place for you too). And because I don’t have all the words to say because I’m knee deep in crying and trying to listen to God, my girlfriend @alittlebitfancy says them for me. But in her Words and her story on her loss. It’s powerful and strong and those who have suffered a loss I truly feel u can heal reading her blog. I know for me it helped. Head over to her page. Her link is in the bio and also in my bio. I love you guys. #yourenotalone
Our thoughts remain with Jana and her little family. We’re looking forward to seeing what the future holds. Perhaps a gold medal in figure skating for Jolie?
