I am actually trying to avoid using emojis less this year because I feel they're just encouraging a lack of needed expression and real communication, slower pace of connectivity, etc. however there are still a few I would have a hard time phasing out...
  1. Red heart. (Hey, the world needs more love!)
  2. Kissy face. Like the above, but for extra loveliness and those well-deserved
  3. Fist punch. (Cuz there's some days when your love gets tested or you just have to stand up for what you love, believe in.)
  4. Blue wave...hey, what can I say, home is where the waves are.
  5. The awesome new middle finger emoji. (Like who doesn't need to throw one down at least once a day??)
