As much as I adore Iris Apfel, its important to shine a light on her other half, Carl Apfel.
Carl just turned 98. Check out the smile on his face and those floral pants! He calls me “his son” and I feel blessed to have him as an honorary Father.
This Sunday we were having dinner at Marea and he gave me the best relationship advice. I was asking him if he and Iris have ever had a bad patch and what was the longest that it’s lasted during the last 64 years. I was expecting something like a month or two… Wrong!
His answer, “Never go to bed with your partner mad at each other. It just builds up. Better to get to the bottom of it that day, so you can move past it. Don’t go to sleep until you are both in agreement.”
