A movie editing software is something without which you can’t make a home movie at all. Movavi’s movie editing software has a very simple user interface; you’ll be able to use it properly even if you have no prior experience of editing videos. You’ll be able to make an outstanding home movie from even unremarkable photos and videos by using this software.

Travelling Alone

I'm going for a women's conference next week which means I'm going to travel all by myself. I would very much prefer to travel with family but since I'm the only one going for the conference, it's more practical to go on my own.

Which means I'll be travelling my bus on my own. Hubby already bought my ticket and he made sure to get the morning bus so, I'll arrive at my destination before dark. My sure the bus i'll be riding has good headlights with xtralights installation guide but I guess it's really better to travel during the day.

Thinking about traveling by myself now feels a bit weird. After being married and with kids, this is only my 3rd time to travel without them. Anyways, I'll take this as an opportunity for a break from all the mommy and homeschool duties and I'll try to make the most out of it. :)

More Lights in our Patio

My handyman hubby strikes again! Recently he just made a set of DIY lights in our patio. This time he used small birdcages as  'lamps'. With more lights outside our house, it does seem our house is the brightest house in the neighborhood.

But with these extra yellow lights, our patio looks cozier and we even find ourselves hanging out there more often. Maybe next time we need to buy buy crinkle taffeta table linens here so, we can 'dine outside' and have a great time with family!
