Everyone Should Have a Carly

I am not sure the exact way to get your hands on one, but i say, when the opportunity arrives, take it. It has been my experience that a Carly is the best kind of friend out there and is, more often than not, like a sister. It would seem she is trained to be there at any time needed whether it be for comfort or just helping you remember to smile. I do not know how it's done, but she also has an enhanced understanding of when to let an individual be alone in their thoughts: she never pries into anything you may not feel like talking about. She always lets you come to her. and when you do, man is she a big help. I mean, advice or answering questions you're too afraid to go ask someone else, she is really handy for that kind of stuff.

Some other pluses-
She will sing with you if you want, and she never makes fun if you are not perfect. She'll let you borrow her clothes too. Unfortunately, I do not think it possible to find another Carly as funny as mine, or as pretty for that matter. So that's a bummer for you reading this. I'd also be surprised if your Carly came with all the same great attachments mine did. For example, the greatest grandparents I could ask for, and tons of other people to look up to and admire that even let me call them family.

I do not know all who were involved in setting me up with a Carly, I think it was mostly Heavenly Father. So, thanks a million, God. I really do not know what I'd do without her. Good luck to all you trying to find one, I'm telling you it's worth it.


  1. You made me cry.

    I am so glad you have a Carly...and I know that you are your own version of a Carly to many people in your life.

  2. There's a Jason in the background. I've heard they're pretty gnarley, too. =)

  3. I don't feel like I'm allowed to comment on this post. It would be selfish of me to say "I'm so glad that Carly chick brings you such joy." So I'm just gonna say..."Ditto, Bran. And you have no idea that I feel the same way about you. You're my Naomi. Life would suck without you." =)

  4. This is precious. And thank heavens I've got a Carly too! I love having you in the family, Bri.

  5. i have a carly, too. but her name is helayna. and i'm glad you wrote this, because you understand. :)

  6. I have a Carly and her name is Carly and she is my best friend ever ever ever and I totally agree-- everyone should have one!
