COCOA is part of our team here at Gigi's and STELLAR

we've known her since she was a very little girl,
she was a regular "gigi's fab kid"
coming to visit Gigi's every summer....
we watched her grow up over the years...
she eventually came to work with us
pretty much the second she was old enough...
it's been so wonderful having her on our team
photographing and documenting
all the fun stuff along the way...
well, today she's GRADUATING
from the University of Montevallo
and has been accepted into
the SACI school of arts in Florence Italy
where she will go in the fall to pursue her masters degree!
Congratulations Cocoa!! we are so proud of you!!
