Buon Compleanno! Happy Birthday is Right!  


After driving over the north side of Etna, through the Nebrodi mountains, and along Sicily’s north coast with a gelato stop in Cefalù (of course!), my beautiful, loving, and always amazing cousins and I celebrated my birthday with a pizza party and live music! 

The beloved trio of Alfanso, Ettore, and Salvatore even got them all doing traditional Sicilian contra dancing! My heart is so full! 

Today, with my companions, us “Intrepid Five,” I am relaxing by the sea before my husband Joe and I say, “alla prossima Sicilia!” tomorrow. 

Thank you for the birthday wishes! It was a very happy birthday.
