Teacup Thursday #26 and Very Good News to Share!

I know it's Miss Spenser's Teacup Thrusday, but I have some very good news to share and my head is still in the clouds. Jim and I went to dinner with Gina and Eric on Monday night and they shared with us that they are engaged! They had just returned from a trip to Alaska to meet his mother and family and they found a beautiful vintage ring and well....everything just happened. They won't get married until next October and they will be living in Seattle.

Here she is helping me with some computer work showing off that beautiful ring!

Gina got a call yesterday for an interview at a community college near Seattle for a teaching position....all very last minute. She had to leave and drive up last night. She has been looking for a job all summer  without any results, so this is really an answer to lots of prayers! It's only for one class, but she will be able to get her foot in the door for more work down the road. She was so sad all week as she loves to teach. My head is still spinning.

Oh yes, back to Teacup Thursday! I chose a set that Jim picked up for me a few weeks ago as a pair~symbolic of the engaged couple. Really lovely cups, a bit of wear, but still so nice....made in France.

I think I'm really too excited to get into Teacup Thursday today. Even my pictures just didn't come out too well. but still wanted to share.

So Happy Teacup Thursday my friends. It's been quite a week for our family and I am so thanking God for His many blessings showered on us this week. The weather has cooled down too and maybe fall is on it's way in the Northwest now!
