MY FAVORITE EMOJIS AND WHY

I struggle to send a message without an emoji - I don't think my point has quite been made if I haven't added an exemplary image - so this one was pretty difficult for me. But here are a few from my current most used list.
  1. 😂
    I actually cry with laughter quite often so this emoji is an accurate representation of my facial expression about 30% of the time.
  2. 🍩
    The best type of doughnut is a doughnut covered in chocolate.
  3. 💛
    River loves yellow so this heart is used frequently. Because I need to share my love for many things and an image is worth a thousand words.
  4. 🐙
    It's surprising how useful this emoji is. And also it's super cute! Who doesn't love little red quadrupi?
  5. 🎉
    It's so handy having an ambiguous celebratory image for when you aren't sure exactly what people are celebrating but know you should be acknowledging its celebratory nature. PARTY TIME!!!
  6. 📱
    The iPhone selfie - I can't help but admire a phone so comfortable with its appearance.
  7. 🇬🇧🇨🇦
    Yes, this is two, but aren't they both so beautiful and symbolic of some pretty wonderful people?
  8. 💀
    I think this is a weird looking skull - I can't stop looking at its crazy cheekbones!!!
