I can’t believe Cracked Open has been out for a year already!! I am shocked that any stranger took the time to review or purchase this collection and I am so, so grateful for it! I hope Where I Ache will be greeted with this much love and more. But for now, I wanted to highlight some moments from…
I don’t know why you had to make me cry. Can’t you see the pain you put me through? We could have worked out if you had been good to me too. -2012
