It is not goodbye but simply see you soon, as I start my new journey of parenthood.
As this article is published, I have officially started maternity leave and await the arrival of our first born – a boy – which is due anytime in the next two weeks.
My time back at The North West Star has been short-lived but a grateful opportunity.
It has enabled me to move back home – closer to my extended family – in which we have moved into a new house and established roots in the Mount Isa region for the next few years.
As I take the next 12 months off, I look forward to experiencing all that this amazing journey has to offer and enjoy quality time with family.
Thank you to everyone for your kindness, support and best wishes. See you all in 2019!
