My gift will someday get to you. I hear that it got put on backorder. Bad holiday season. ;)
Now, that said! This is my card, or something.
Thanks for all the years of friendship and companionship you've shown me. This year you managed your (singularly) own place, and I'm sorry I haven't been able to properly celebrate that fact by any sort of housewarming or anything. Rest assured, I'll come bug you sometime, but in the meantime I want to make sure you know how wonderful you are.
Best wishes to you for the next year. Each year can only get better, right? Maybe one of your closely held dreams will come true.
Here's to hope and hoping I can be a part of it.
Happy Birthday Laura.
