Back in December, former One Tree Hill star Jana Kramer opened up to her fans about the second miscarriage she suffered. But now she’s revealed that after a heartbreaking year, she and her husband, Mike Caussin, have renewed their wedding vows.

“2017…… broke my heart, you broke me down, you made me question everything, but damn did you make me strong,” the 34-year-old wrote on Instagram, along with a photo of herself and her love on the beach during their renewal ceremony in Hawaii.

With additional photos showing the pair together, as well as with their pup and one-year-old daughter, Jolie, the actress added, “You taught me patience, you taught me family was everything. You made me believe not only in myself but the power of forgiveness. You turned me into the woman I always wanted to be.”

Kramer certainly faced her share of hardships this year, including a separation from Caussin and rumors that he cheated on her with multiple women. But it sounds like she’s come out of it all with more confidence in herself and more faith in her family than ever before.

In September, she spoke about the issues she was facing on Bachelor alum Olivia Caridi’s podcast Mouthing Off, saying, “Trust is a hard thing when it’s broke to get back. We’re in so much therapy, it’s not even funny. But it’s good, though. I’ve learned so much about myself in the process. And again, either way we’ll come out healthier because of it.”

Then, in November, she posted a pic of herself and her family to Instagram, with the caption, “A family worth fighting for…”

And it looks like that fight will be the focus of the new year. “I have NO clue what 2018 has in store for me,” the singer wrote in her latest Insta post, “but I’ve never been more ready to live day by day and enjoy each day as it comes at me. Here’s to always believing in love and fighting for it… 2018, I’m ready for you!”
