hard to believe: Rosemary Beach turns 15 years old this summer! thought it would be fun to check in with just a few of the kids who have been coming to rosemary for a large chunk of those 15 years. Gigi's is only 7, but one of the biggest privileges of working here for all of us has been getting to be a small part of these childhood memories.
