As they say .. It had bones.
And they were beautiful.
I remember the fun we had shopping for and buying furniture and lighting and all the appliances.
We went to antique shops and bought the chandeliers, we bought soft bedding and a posh sofa in a more modern sort of "mall" and we excitedly hung the paintings and prints we had collected over the years.
This entire period of time, the house hunt, the planning and rehab and finished product were the happiest days .. not the happiest ever but on that list of Happiest Times.
There are many days that I wish we were still there .. but the way things turned out, I guess it was fate that made sure I was here in the US when suddenly made a widow.
I can't quite imagine how I would have managed alone in Buenos Aires .. but sometimes I really would like to find out .
