Wonderful gathering of international friends to enjoy the making and eating of a
gorgeous paella

Last weekend, my husband, Mark, and I hosted a paella party for our friends, Analia and Uwe. It was something we just couldn’t resist.

We celebrated Analia’s birthday along with several dozen of the couple’s international friends from Costa Rica, Spain, Italy, Germany, Peru, and Argentina.

Everyone wanted to experience the creation of the paella, and we were not disappointed. The paella included shrimp, octopus, squid, white fish, cod, scallops, lots of veggies, special spices, and of course, rice. It was delicious!

I’m so thrilled we opened our home to their wonderful friends. We ate paella, drank wonderful wines, and celebrated Analia’s birthday with a decadent cake and some bubbly. We ended the evening dancing to Spanish music under the light of the moon, lots of tiki torches, and a bonfire. What a terrific way to kick off the upcoming fall season!

This week, I’m interviewing Mat Shaffer because I was recently one of the speakers for his Purpose, Passion and Prosperity Summit. I loved working with him so much that I had to share his inspirational message with you! Enjoy!
