Drum roll, please…

 

The 2019 Pantone Color of the year is…

 

                          .Living Coral

Pantone describes it as:

 

“An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

In fact, I have eighteen years of experience in the medical profession.  WOW, time flies and I have enjoyed every gritty, heartbreaking, joyful, tearful, ecstatic, stressful, learning and happy moment that, that profession provided. There is nothing like being given the honor of being part of someone's worst experience and helping them along the way to better health.  

     But wait...how does real estate come in?
