War and Peace! I did not see that coming but I probably should have.
You know what else threw me for a particularly unusual loop? How much Anna Wintour and my husband, Abie, have in common. Case in point: their respective propensities for tennis, a strict alcohol-consumption (or lack thereof) policy, allegiance to Starbucks, a quotidian 5AM start time, unflinching respect for the evolution of Brooklyn, neither can sing — or carry a bag — both enjoy coffee ice cream but hate horoscopes and incidentally, they both have a divine affection for an English sense of humour.
Separately, two things struck me as especially telling about Ms. Wintour: the concept of memories as superlative family heirlooms and home as the ideal vacation destination. Fundamentally, it seems, we, as humans, appreciate the same things and it is very rarely that those thing come wrapped in anything but love, familiarity and comfort.
November 3rd is Anna Wintour and Kendall Jenner’s Birthday…
