1. All things “Emoo”
My mom’s nickname was “Emoo.” She died during the summer of 2013. She was my bestest friend and I miss her every day. I treasure all things “Emoo.”

2. The ocean
The smell, the sound – i love it all.  i don’t think i could live without being near it.

3. Fire
It has the most calming effect.  I recently remodeled my home all around my fireplace.

4. Music
It can make any sadness go away and can highlight the happy.

5. Books
There is nothing better than a good book to escape. “Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on love and life from Dear Sugar” by Cheryl Strayed is particularly good for the soul.
