Happy 300th to my Blog!

This is my 300th post! It crept up on me as I didn't realize how many times I have come here to reveal, show-off or express some sort of feeling, emotion or celebration. I love my blog. And I love the friends and opportunities that have taken place here because of it. Coincidentally I wanted to share with you an event we took part in last week titled #3. Funny how that number 3 appeared again! Our friend Donna Parker has a lovely home in Warrenton, and she bought 3 guest homes to be moved to her property. We were there to capture the amazing event on camera. I can't describe to you the powerful energy of a home being towed down a country road. To imagine that it will still be in tact on it's new resting spot on a different piece of land. In fact one of he houses still has furniture inside!! It is exciting to imagine how history is being preserved and appreciated. Thanks Donna for allowing us to shre this event with you. Divine raptue! ~ wink~

Now that's something that you don't see every day... maybe never day.

Congrats on 300! Great pics of the "moving houses" - over here, most houses are made of brick of some kind, so moving them that way would be impossible!

this is very cool! Living in a fast growing area with lots of old houses being torn down to make room for new.. I must say I enjoy sitting at a red light longer than need be when I see a truck pulling a beauty through the intersection.. makes me feel a small part of history somehow! Great shots! Great story!

I had heard Donna had a home in Warrenton, and it's great to see she's preserving more history. Good for her and Congrats to her! Please tell her I said hello.

isn't it amazing that they can do that. did they have to take down any powerlines for the houses? ...and how traffic comes to a halt as this house(s) is being rebirthed...
