I love summer in a BIG way. It's a big deal around these parts, and for good reason - summers in New England are what dreams are made of. And after the winter we've had, I plan on celebrating every.single.day of this glorious season. So I teamed up with Erin McGinn and SMP Living to give some of my go-to tips, recipes and cocktails so we can all kick off the season (and my birthday weekend!) in serious style.
