Old friends of my parents had Rob and I over to dinner earlier this week to celebrate our engagement. This couple has lived in San Francisco for over 40 years in a four story Edwardian house in the Inner Richmond.
Before I moved to the city, I thought their home was large. Now that I live here, it is positively palatial (For reference, this $6 million property listing is nearby). The best part is that they likely bought their house for something around $70,000.
This couple is definitely an inspiration, even with real estate aside. They take music lessons each week (so do we!) and have some funny hobbies (Rob and I are the king of funny hobbies!). The best of all is their habit of a daily ping pong match. Septegenerian ping pong is officially one of my life goals now!
