April is Simply Brilliant

The Mysterious X

All three of my daughters extend their birthday celebrations to incorporate surrounding holidays or other festivities.  Spanning several weeks they make the most of the occasion with both their Dad’s family and mine.  For my April baby, twenty one this year, that has always included the madness which is Derby in Louisville.  And much sushi, really.

Rainbow Roll

It’s an addiction inherited from and fostered lovingly by me.  One of our favorite haunts, Mimosa Cafe, sits on Bardstown Road in the Highlands.  An extremely hip and intellectual neighborhood, just like X herself.

Boston Rolls

Since a walk in either direction on Bardstown is bound to lead to amazing adventure, we start at the restaurant and end up where ever the road rises to meet us.  Stellar experience, guaranteed to always exceed expectations.

Spider and Spicy Tuna Roll

In conversation the other evening, planning for this year’s sushi explosion, she had a sudden gleeful epiphany.  This year, because I’m ancient, she can have a beer with lunch.  Nothing feels quite like being young, beautiful and free to make one’s own choices.  Especially if it’s springtime in the Highlands.
