TJ and his friends wandered into Wando’s Bar on a Friday night when TJ realized he had never seen Kelly bartending there before.

They decided to make it official in 2017. Most of their weekends consisted of bartending and football.

Kelly moved to Philadelphia and shortly after TJ surprised her with Harlow (their fur baby) for her birthday.
