Paris in Springtime = Vamos for Rafa!

After the Vintage Market ends it's time for me and my mom to start packing for the French Open. Yes, it's our other passion, besides antiques! We leave today and return June 7th, hopefully getting to see this first...

My mom and I have made lasting friends with other Rafael Nadal fans around the are a couple of them, Suzy & Ruby, from California.

If you want some pure excitement or just a role model for your kids and grandkids, check out this 23 year old Spaniard. There are a lot of words written about him and if you get bit by the "Rafa" bug like me and my mom then go to our favorite website, Vamos Brigade,

to check out my blog under "Fan Experiences" which will chronicle our cheering for Rafa in Paris. And I don't think you'll be surprised to learn my screen name there is 'bluebird' :)


p.s. Just because we love to cheer Rafa doesn't mean we won't take a few hours to cruise the Paris Flea Markets :)
