The 'Tahilla Pack' and men in black...

Chateau Mango, Vietnam

This morning eight men dressed in black whizzed 
into our driveway and parked their motorcycles 
alongside our house. 
They came to start the 'Tahilla Pack'. 
The time has come.

I have spent weeks tagging and sorting, inside and out. 
I have to say it has been hard not to feel nostalgic 
for what we have created at Chateau Mango.
It's been a labor of love.

Even though our days in Vietnam are not quite over yet, 
Chateau Mango will shortly be a shadow of it's former self. 
And that's ok...we knew this time would come. 
We have been planning for it since we arrived four years ago
and we certainly have been busy.

This goes with that...kind of.

I can't help but wonder...
what will it be like when Chateau Mango 
merges with Tahilla Farm?

I have been able to keep my sanity through it all 
with the help of my youngest son, Connor
He came home for a two week school break...
I just love when he comes home,
Tika does too.

Connor has since returned to Sydney
leaving his mother talking to herself again.
Mr. H is keeping quiet.
Smart man.

I fly back to Tahilla Farm in two weeks
where a garden party awaits and a college graduation.
Our Miss Claire is graduating!

Claire is off to Africa in July 
for a two year assignment with the Peace Corps.
We are so very proud of our girl in 
 red, white and blue.

I would love to share one more thing. My mother, Alma,
was recently interviewed and asked to tell
 a little bit about herself and her shop. 
It was so much fun to view
and since many of you have asked...
here is Alma and her thoughts about turning 80.
Go Mom!

Wishing you a wonderful week!
Thank you so much for reading along!!
