My dearest Carly,
You are one of my favorites, for so many reasons. Your wit, your compassion, your unflinching honesty, your writing, your beauty, inside and out. . . the list could go on and on. You are a bright spot in so many people's lives, and I don't think you're quite aware of how. . . awesome you are. You truly are one of the best people I know and I'm the better for having you as my friend.
You are loved, and I know that I'm not alone in wishing you the best for the next year.
