Nestled between the slope of Mount Etna and the majestic Mediterranean Sea is where we enjoy the Sicilian Simplicity

A day out with the girls…
This week, while shopping for vegetables, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Justina and Rosaria. Both of them happen to be from Australia, so it was an absolute pleasure to speak in English! Rosaria is passing through for the moment, as she is off onto another travel destination next week. Justina and her husband happen to be neighbors of ours, living just a few houses up the road from us. We got together this morning for coffee, conversation, and a stroll in the sunshine at the Linguaglossa street market. While there, we were introduced to Annalisa, a friend of Justina who lives in Linguaglossa and studies languages in Catania. There we were, all four speaking in English, while every person that passed turned his or her head to hear this strange language being spoken… I look forward to many more get-togethers… We'll see you soon Rosaria!
I have been carried away to a world that stops to taste the sweetness of the land, and admire all the treasures that their rich black soil provides. Now my journey begins as we enjoy the simple pleasures of the life! We came from different worlds, spoke different languages, but that didn’t stop us. We have our home in Sicily, and many adventures await us. Sicilia is our home!
Sailing across the Gulf of Mexico, I had the pleasure of meeting the most amazing man. Little did I know that he would eventually become the love of my life and would change my world. We were both working aboard a cruise line at the time. He, an Italian Engineer, and I, the featured headlining Vocalist, met at a crew party and the rest is history. Our beginning... Wedding Pictures...
