Well, I'll admit that at first I was a little uncertain about the choice of this year's color. They actually chose two colors — but it's not "Colors of the Year," it's "Color of the Year".
When we heard that they chose Rose Quartz (pale pink) and Serenity (pale blue), Eric and I wondered about what we could find in nature to represent both of those colors at once.
There are probably quite a few options, but we first recognized it in the sky. These colors are often paired at sunrise and sunset. So here you go!
