Another year has come and gone, and with it, a lot of learning, growing, and changing. Every year end I like to look back and reflect on the best moments of the year because even if you have the most challenging year, it is still a blessing. Here is a recap of all of my personal favorites from 2022. I hope you find some inspiration in here for your upcoming year!

Best Travels

Rhode Island! I haven’t been to this cute little state since my college days and it was exciting to explore it with adult eyes. I traveled to a few different areas in the state, including an incredible one night stay at The Preserve, as well as a couple days exploring both Newport and Providence. Be on the lookout for more details on my trip on Bella Magazine. You can always search for more Rhode Island Instagram content with the tag #mwatinri.

Arizona! Obviously if you follow me on social media, you know I go to Arizona at least once every yer, and now that my family has a home there, it’s certainly going to be more frequent. Let me know if you are interested in a Scottsdale area travel guide! You can always search more Arizona Instagram content with the tag #mwatinaz.

Miami! I went to Miami for a weekend for a friend’s bachelorette party and it felt great to have some time at the beach, go out dancing, and eat great food. You can always search for more Florida Instagram content with the tag #mwatinfl.

Fort Lauderdale! I had a press trip to this Florida hub and had a surprisingly fun time. You can read my thoughts on this underrated city here.

Isle of Palms & Charleston, South Carolina! This was another press trip and so much fun. It’s always a fun time down in South Carolina and you can read all about these two charming areas here. You can always search for more South Carolina Instagram content with the tag #mwatinsc.

Aruba! My original trip to Aruba was cancelled because I got Covid, but I was able to reschedule and make it there this past spring. What a beautiful island! Read all about it, along with some other tropical hot spots, here. Here I stayed at the incomparable Amsterdam Manor Resort, the only Dutch-style hotel on the island. Their hospitality was beyond.

BI! Also known as Long Beach Island, this is a great getaway from the city, located in New Jersey. This was a friends’ getaway that was much needed this summer. You can always search for more New Jersey Instagram content with the tag #mwatinnj.

Tuscany, Italy! I finally made it back to Europe for the first time since the pandemic. Gosh, Tuscany is beautiful. I got to travel to two small towns – Barga and Lucca. Stay tuned for an upcoming feature about it in Bella Magazine. You can always search for more Italy Instagram content with the tag #mwatinitaly.

The Caribbean! I explored a few islands in the Caribbean Sea with Celebrity Cruises. I did a week-long cruise and traveled to the Dominican Republic, St. Thomas, and Saint Marteen.
