<p>Yesterday I taught the Intro to Jamming class at the Country Music Hall of Fame and a seven year old boy from Ontario gave me this keychain as a thank you gift for showing him how to play the mandolin, which he’s been wanting to do his “whole life”. I love my job. #ohcanada #bluegrass #countrymusic @abitapia  (at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum)</p>

<p>Fresh out of the oven, pizza all from scratch. Homemade crust, of course but even sun dried tomatoes I sun dried myself. Feelin’ sassy. As you can see, only I like salami. #fiddlerswhocook #foodporn #pizzanight #buylocal #growyourown  (at Lynch Chowning Music Camp Headquarters)</p>

I am excited to embark on a new chapter of my working life - I recently gave my notice to the Pam Tillis organization and will no longer be touring with her or Lorrie Morgan (on their awesome Grits and Glamour Tour). I must admit, I'm sad to be leaving. It's been an incredible four years and I have learned so much. Thanks to Pam, her amazing husband/manager Matt Spicher, and my bandmates, especially the lovely and talented Mary Sue Englund, with whom I spent more time over the last few years than I did with my husband. And I wouldn't trade a minute of it...
