A Very Brady Renovation Review

Fifty years ago, a little family show premiered. It told the story of the marriage of a widower, a widow, their combined family of six children and their maid. It was only on the air for five years, but this show is as iconic as it gets.

The show is The Brady Bunch.

Monday night, A Very Brady Renovation premiered on HGTV. Last summer, the house was used as the exterior shots The Brady Bunch was put on the market. Purchased by HGTV, the house is being renovated to match the set. Led by HGTV stars The Property Brothers and advised by the actors who played the Brady kids, each episode focuses on the renovation of a specific portion of the house. At the end of the season, the home will look like it came straight out of the Hollywood sound stage.

I really like this show. It is unique, entertaining and full of nostalgia with just enough of the home renovation process to easily ensnare home renovation show addicts.

I recommend it.

A Very Brady Renovation airs on Monday nights at 9pm on HGTV.

Maxwell and Finnegan: A Reminder of Love on 9/11

Eighteen years ago today, nearly three thousand people lost their lives due to hate.

As I was listening to live stream of the memorial ceremony this morning, one thing struck me. Those who died that day and those who died in the aftermath were of different races, nationalities, religions, etc. But the one thing that they all have in common is that they are victims of September 11th.

But love still prevails. On the streets of New York City, two young boys, Maxwell and Finnegan, are best friends. Maxwell’s father filmed the boys, one black and one white as they randomly met on the street. The video, which has gone viral, is nothing short of beautiful.

Today we remember and mourn those who lost their lives. But this video and this friendship gives me hope that there is still love in this world. Hate may have it’s day in the sun, but in the end, love will always prevail.
