Everyday cowgirl: Katlyn Rumbold

 An “everyday cowgirl” can come from anywhere. 
She can live down a dusty dirt road or on a busy city street. 
An “everyday cowgirl” is not determined by your location.
“you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl”

This week’s everyday cowgirl is Katlyn Rumbold.
She sent me an email and it started out saying “Howdy”.
I knew right away I was going to like her! :)
(Katlyn and one her family's show heifers)

Katlyn hails from a small town in the Midwest
where she was raised on a farm and learned
the value of hard work and a strong faith at a very young age.
I was so glad she mentioned Faith in her message to me. 
Faith is a huge part of an “everyday cowgirl”!!!

Katlyn no longer lives on her family’s farm
but she still holds the values and lessons learned there.
 During the week, she can be found in the city advocating for agriculture.
She writes agricultural content ranging from various crop diseases
to utilizing social media on the farm.
(This picture is taken the day Katlyn moved to the city)

When not in the office, she can be found at cattle shows, tractor pulls,
county fairs, trail rides, and even western stores shopping for new boots and bling.
(now if that doesn’t scream cowgirl I don’t know what does)
 (Katlyn and her siblings in the pasture amongst the cattle)

She is such a well rounded young women. 
Her favorite song is “Gun powder and lead” by Miranda Lambert. 
BUT, going to a Lady Gaga concert is on her bucket list.
I love this about her.
Katlyn is the perfect example of an everyday cowgirl for this very reason.
She has traditional values but had a modern sense of style! 
A perfect mix, which truly makes an "everyday cowgirl".

No matter how busy Katlyn’s schedule is she always makes time
to watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette.
She has been a big fan since the beginning!
“Fan” may even be an understatement…She may be a bit obsessed!  :)

She also finds times to keep an amazing blog called Midwest Farm Girl.
You really should check it out!
You can follow her many adventures of being a farm girl advocating in the big city. 
As much as she loves wearing her high heels and being a fancy city girl,
her heart is in the country (in a pair of boots) and that is where she truly belongs.
That saying is so true
“you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.”

Thank you Katlyn for being an “everyday cowgirl”!
Your strong faith, down home attitude, dedication, determination, ag knowledge
all combined with your well rounded personality
makes you a great example of an “everyday cowgirl”.
