As 2017 quickly comes to an end, I have been reflecting on the things I have learnt this year. With much to be thankful for, and as I think about the next 12 months, I find myself full of hope and determination. It was a massive time with lots of challenges but I wouldn't change...

So it's that time of year again where most people are taking a break from their busy lives and instead will spend some quality time with family and friends.
