Life is chaotic, have fun

This is the story of The Brady Bunch, a woman who was bringing up two very lovely girls, all of them had hair, the youngest one in curls.


Here’s the story of a man named Chris, who was busy with three boys and a girl of his own, they were five people living all together, yet they were all alone.


Till the one day when the cute lady winked on at this fellow. And they knew it was much more than a hunch, that this crazy crew would somehow form a family.

 Not quite as harmonious as the beloved Brady Bunch….yet a family full of love and fun.  Chris and Toby would do it all over again.

"Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle"

-Paulo Coelho, Brida
