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

Easter Monday, also known as Little Easter (Pasquetta) is an official Italian holiday that is often spent enjoying the fresh Spring weather with family and friends in picnics at "una campagna", in the country. Yesterday, after ten in the morning, we were off to the store to pick up the necessary ingredients for a feast at Luca's house by the sea in Giardini Naxos. Imagine the confusion... Cars everywhere, traffic lined up for miles, and people standing in the street outside the town butcher. People from all over literally travel to our town to buy meat at Macelleria Fratelli Cerra. I've met people from all over Sicily, while waiting for my number to be called...
The girls preparing the meal in the kitchen... Vita, Maria, and myself.
The boys, Salvo, Antonello, and Luca...
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...
