Sam Armytage has shared a glimpse into her early retirement lifestyle after leaving Channel Seven breakfast show Sunrise.

‘What more could a girl want?’ she captioned the short clip.
Sam left Sunrise in March for a relaxed life in the Southern Highlands with her new husband, Richard Lavender.
But last week, the broadcast journalist revealed she ‘doesn’t think she’s done’ with working on television during a candid interview with The Daily Telegraph.

While she is currently very happy working on her podcast Something To Talk About, Sam, 44, admitted she has pondered returning to screens – but there would be conditions.
‘I don’t think I am done with TV – I am for now but I may some day get back in but it has to be the right role and it has to be at the right time,’ she said.
‘I am quite happy not to go at the pace or at the level I was at before, because I don’t think that brought me much happiness.’

Sam went on to say that she has been advised by her pals to be picky with her next role, as she wasn’t content with the ‘amount of attention’ Sunrise brought her.
‘I think I am at a really nice point in my life where I can afford to be choosy,’ she added.
Sam’s resignation in March followed months of rumours she was preparing to spend more time with her Richard and her dog Banjo at his country estate.

Sam started dating Richard, 61, in April 2019, and announced their engagement in June last year.
She tied the knot with the millionaire businessman on New Year’s Eve, in a quaint ceremony at his Southern Highlands home.
Their intimate wedding ceremony featured only a small number of guests due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with Richard’s daughters, Sasha and Grace, believed to be in attendance.

A beaming Sam wore a bucket hat and blue turtleneck jumper, while Richard looked relaxed in a black windbreaker.
In the caption, Sam quoted some advice her late mother, Libby, had given her, and said she was embarking on a ‘new chapter’ of her life.
She wrote: ‘”Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly. It’s your masterpiece after all.” My mum. And I did. And this is what the next chapter looks like… ‘
