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.
