Definitely a hallmark book with fun cozy short stories about how people and experiences matter more than things and money. Of course I loved reading this and relaxing with it!

The Author of the book talks about the fifty things that really matter in life. This book really makes you think about your life and even everyone else's lives, the people that surround you; friends and family. It helps you understand that there are bigger things and smaller things in life, it can even help you solve any issues that you might have. 50 Things really put you in someone else's shoes and gives you different perspectives on pondering life. ...more
