Rachel and Adam met in Washington, D.C., where they lived a block apart. Rachel was attending Georgetown Law School and they started dating four months prior to the beginning of COVID. Rachel remembers, “We were lucky to be together during the pandemic and found a lot of activities to keep us busy.” Now deemed ‘Camp Adam’ by the couple, this time was spent doing everything from playing tennis, hiking, and kayaking to taking virtual cooking and candle making classes to doing puzzles. While many would find being thrown into such an intense situation while still getting to know a person challenging, Rachel and Adam credit this period for establishing the strong foundation of their relationship. “Adam and I perfectly balance each other out. We love to sit on the couch watching TV shows and movies together just as much as we love to play tennis or go out with friends. Neither of us could imagine spending our life without the other.” She finishes, “To this day, we still try to incorporate ‘Camp Adam’ activities into our free time.”

If you were to imagine a painterly sunset vista, a picture awash with graduating pink and orange may come to mind. Sauntering throughout the composition, harmonizing its alluring scheme is Peach Fuzz, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2024. Where as last year’s color, Viva Magenta, announced itself in dramatic fashion, Peach Fuzz greets with soft caress. Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman elaborates:

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”
