I like to think of our small house as being a small mansion. That way, when I leave our house, the half block on either side of our house is like a wing of our little mansion. There’s a laundry at the end of one block, and a restaurant at the end of the block, a vegetable market on the corner, and a small store around the corner.
Go just a block and a half to find a tortilla shop, two coffee shops, and four restaurants. One of those restaurants is in a small hotel which are the guest rooms of our little mansion.
It’s al about your perspective.
