Here’s a great little trick I learned from my youngest daughters. If you are in the OSX mail app just hold down control-command-space and a window will appear full of emoji. Click any emoji and it will be added to your email. (Emoji are the little smiles etc that people put in emails. ūüėČ)

Press control-command-space to bring up this list of emoji.

Once you have the emoji in your email, if you want to make it bigger, just select the emoji and press Apple ‘+’ to make the font bigger.
