A Dream

So, since my exciting announcement about my new store opening in January 2014 I think it is appropriate to make a little shift in focus on this here blog!

If this is the first time you happen to be visiting The Dusty Road Blog, thanks for stopping by! My name is Kimberley, I would love for you to join me on my new adventure!

A love for the western lifestyle runs deep in my veins. I grew up on a mixed farm with both grain and livestock and I always had at least two or three horses to ride. I spent many years in 4-H showing cattle and horses and I was a competitive barrel racer traveling all over to rodeos. To this day I still raise cattle, ride and train horses, and just recently started barrel racing again. It is without a doubt a life I wouldn’t trade for anything (although a warmer climate in the winter would be much appreciated by me!).

I have had a dream that I pretty much kept secret since I was in high school…..that dream was to own my own western wear & tack store. I even created a business plan for it as part of an assignment for an Entrepreneurship class in grade 12. Throughout the following years I hadn’t given it too much thought but I am not one to let a good dream go and it was always in the back of my mind.

Fast forward 10 years and that dream is becoming a reality!

Although I don’t take possession of my new store for another 5 months I am hoping my blog can create a little bit of community behind it…..I will post things such as inspiration, western style, interesting products, behind the scenes of developing my store, and some of my personal ramblings scattered throughout.

        I am so upset because All my Children has beeneancellcd and I will really miss One Life to Live.I have watched and enjoyed these two soaps foryears and years and years and years ..It has become a part of my daily routine, to watchthem in the evening. I was so happy when I got aVCR and now a DVR because I did not want to give up my stories as my grandmother called them. I had towork, we could not make it on one salary after bothmy sons were born. I hope I did not contribute tothe cancellation because I recorded them insteadof watching in their time slot. But I had to workduring those hours as I bet many people do.And putting on another cooking show to replaceAll my Children was a stupid thing to do. There aretoo many cooking shows as it is and I will never watchThe Chew.
