Fun Finds | Il Volo

Well hello there blog world! guess what?!

I am officially a college graduate! YAY!!! (still trying to figure out what to do with my life. and my blog. decisions. decisions…)

Anywhoo, that is probably really uninteresting to most of the world so instead here’s a fun find: Il Volo an Italian singing group.

Piero (19), Gianluca (17), & Ignazio (18)

 

Tonight, while being forced to watch PBS with my parents (ah the beauty of moving “home”) Il Volo came on to promote their new album and tour.  Thank goodness I didn’t walk away because the beautiful songs that came from these TEENAGERS voices were phenomenal.

If you haven’t heard of Il Volo, I highly suggestion giving your ears a vacation and sinking into the waves of sound.  Both their renditions of “O Sole Mio” and “Smile” are awe inspiring.

Of course, I love that two of these cuties hail from the land of my heritage (Sicily) — Gianluca is from central Italy, but honestly their voices can take you far far away.  Whether they are singing in their native tongue or any of the other romance languages they know, the words captivate anyone in ear shot.

The bio of this trio is short on their website, so if you’d like to know more, check it out here.  However basically know this: they are three adorable Italians who sing beautifully, and were lucky enough to win an Italian signing competition, and they are now touring the world breaking hearts wherever they go.

P.S. I’m totally in love with Piero ♥

The Sicilian Kitchen | Mom’s Lasagna

Well kids, it was a success….I made my mom’s lasagna and I didn’t destroy the recipe’s perfection!

For years I’ve assumed that to make lasagna one must spend an entire weekend  slaving away in the kitchen. As it turns out, it wasn’t that hard after all. Once you have sauce prepared, the lasagna part is really quite simple.

This is a pretty long post, so I will be including a “continue” button, so the first page of my blog isn’t 100 miles long. Since I have not done this before I wanted to give people fair warning. Simply click the title of the post (above) to go to the full post, or just click the “continue reading” button and the post should expand. Nobody freak out, I know change is scary!
