Sheltering Wright: My essay in NEWSWEEK

“The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.” ~Frank Lloyd Wright

It’s hard to believe a full year has passed since the global pandemic reshaped the way we live every day. Last spring, when the monotony of living in lockdown set in, Doug and I decided to spend more time at our Wright home (the Carl Schultz house) in St. Joseph. Prior to the pandemic, we’d put a great deal of effort into renovating and upgrading the home and its surrounding property — but rarely took time to actually live in the place and enjoy the results of our labor. The pandemic motivated us to change that last year, and it inspired an essay that’s now published in Newsweek. You can read it here.

My award-winning lifestyles features and essays have appeared in many national magazines and anthologies, including Newsweek, Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, Writer's Digest, Victoria, Better Homes & Gardens, Bella Grace, and more. My weekly Sunday "Life Lines" column ran for 14 years in The Daily Tribune (Royal Oak, MI) and won a First Place (Local Columns) award from the Michigan Press Association. My essay collection, Writing Home, includes 93 previously published columns and essays focusing on parenthood and family life.
