In most cases, your Lifetime Health Cover base day is the later of 1 July 2000 or the 1st of July following your 31st birthday.
Last spring, after Swift accepted Britany’s invitation to be maid of honor via Instagram—kids today!
—she took Maack to Reem Acra, where Britany got fitted for her custom hand-embroidered silk-taffeta wedding gown and Taylor for the blush-pink, cap-sleeved chiffon maid-of-honor dress that she has on today (the fitting was also Instagrammed, naturally).
She is the maid of honor at the wedding of her childhood friend Britany Maack.
Swift and Maack have known each other since Swift was ten days old and have stayed close—there are grainy home videos of the two romping around a crib together and, more recently, photos of them sitting side by side at the 2014 Grammys.
We pull up alongside, and Andrea rolls down her window. “This must really bring back some memories,” Dave says. She surveys the fields behind the driveway, which include a small grove of pine trees her parents once planted.
They now look tall enough for Christmas at Rockefeller Center. Just a few years back, Swift was so excited about relocating to New York City—it was the creative basis for —but when she’s in the city now, within a couple of days, there is a circus of photographers outside her apartment building. The wedding ceremony has finished—Britany and Ben made it official to applause—and Swift and I have huddled downstairs at the church during a break before the reception.
Returning to the place where you grew up can be a bit of a mind-bender for anyone, and Swift is no different.
There are nuns here at Sacred Heart Chapel who taught Swift in kindergarten. It’s the morning of the wedding, and I am riding in an SUV with Swift and her mother, Andrea.
Many of the wedding guests have known her for just as long. Andrea is powering down the road, and Swift, dressed in a caramel-colored Reformation jacket and a pair of black jeans, is sitting passenger side.
“It’s beautiful.” This is where, Andrea tells me, Taylor Swift was brought home from the hospital in, well, 1989—I guess everyone knows the year of Taylor’s birth by now. I ask her: When was the last time you were in a place where nobody in the press had any idea you were there—no reporters, no photographers? “If I go somewhere and stay in a house, nobody knows.” Swift says she is ready to lie a little low.
The split-rail fence that’s still standing—Scott and Andrea built that themselves. After the wedding, she will go to New York, where she will be spotted dining with her friend Lena Dunham, and then be seen a week later in Los Angeles with her brother, Austin, and her friend Lorde at the “I have no idea,” she says, with a sigh that’s more blissful than anxious.
