Twin Trip!

Our birthday is about to arrive! Over the last few years we have started a tradition of going on a trip together for our birthday. Our first trip was to French Lick in Indiana. It is a delightful spa with a fascinating history. It is set where the natural sulfa springs were. While there we rested, talked, laughed, dined, and enjoyed the spa. We found a book that was written by an author while he stayed there. “So Cold the River” by Michael Koryta. Very good-highly recommend it.

We would wander to a pretty spot and read that book, get up, wander to another pretty spot and read….another pretty spot and read. We read they whole book while there. We were inspired! Somehow that experience motivated us to start writing together. We booked a room at the sister spa in Indiana-West Badin for the next year. West Badin is a fabulous place. It has a huge dome and is full of flowing statues, and again with a rich history.

For two years we returned there for a writing retreat. We completed a manuscript that is under review in the self-help-memoir genre.

This year we go to Pennsylvania. The Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. We will start the brainstorming on our new book. The amazing part is our thought process. As identical twins, we think so much the same, yet we have somewhat different perspectives. Thoughts can be jotted down before they are completed…the other one instinctively knows what the first one was saying! So we accomplish a lot in a few days.

We will giggle, laugh, wine and dine, rest, and come home with a complete book outline of chapter summaries!

It is so much fun being a twin! Happy Birthday Sister!
