What better way to celebrate Ainsley Mumford’s return from a fabulous National Outdoor Leadership School backpacking trip to Australia (and her belated birthday) than a party? She has been “roughing it” for a while, so we’re going “all-out” with her favorite flowers, a Mexican-inspired dinner, a carrot cake from O’Delice on Magazine Street and her favorite songs on the jukebox to which her friends can sing and dance.
