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

Morning walk with Mount Etna
Every morning, way before the sun rises, Antonello and I take walks through the many hidden and untraveled streets in our area. Well, this morning we were greeted with a site. It's been so cloudy near Etna that we haven't been able to see her very well. Obviously, my picture didn't capture the moment, but it was beautiful. For days we have been sweeping black soot off our terraces and balconies as Mount Etna has been very active these past few days. It's common dialogue between ladies of the town to exchange the woes of sweeping...
But, thanks to her our soil is so rich and full of nutrients!
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...
