<p>Well, here’s just about my favorite thing that’s happened at #weiser - Old time  jam at Clifford’s in the air conditioning with some of my absolute favorites. Best afternoon ever. #oldtime #fiddle #tenorguitar #harmonica #yepyoucansmokeinthere #thesaubers  (at Clifford’s Tavern)</p>

<p>Seriously though, this is how you become a better songwriter. Spots are going… <a href="http://www.nashvillesongwritercamp.com">www.nashvillesongwritercamp.com</a> #bluegrass #countrymusic #americana #numberonesongwriter  (at Ridgetop, Tennessee)</p>

<p>Here’s a former student of mine - this is Tarquin, friends. He’s also taken some lessons from @lukeplusrach and @fiddlerjustinbranum and I think he’s working with the lovely @deanier these days and the point is, this kid is a real musician. He has really mature ideas and never gets tired of playing and experimenting and I just love how his brain works. He’s fearless and loving. Be like Tarquin. #fiddle #fiddlecontest #weiser #swing #jazz #tarquinisacoolname (at National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest & Festival)</p>

<p>I made my mom climb these stairs. She’s pretty much up for whatever. It’s a fun game too - you can make up your own version of the house that sits at the top of them. #imagination #stairwaytoheaven #whyarethesehere #weiser #fiddlecontest  (at National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest & Festival)</p>

<p>Here’s another one of my precious students - Miss Abbey Uebelhoer who works hard, plays great, loves horses, and thinks everyone is beautiful exactly as they are. Seriously, she said that. Be like Abbey. #fiddle #Weiser #fiddlecontest  (at Weiser High School)</p>

<p>So proud of my girl Faith - she just placed 3rd in the National Fiddle Championships in the 8 and under age division. Yep, third in the nation. She is an absolute sweetheart, plays the fiddle like crazy, and is generally just a precious student. All the kids were amazing today. Fiddling is safe for another year… #fiddle #Weiser #nationalfiddlecontest  (at Weiser High School)</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...
