After years of passing each other by, Elijah chose to shoot his shot!
Elijah and Kellie went on their first date on October 30, 2013, but their story began long before then. Kellie was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. Elijah was born in Indianapolis, IN and his family later relocated to Baltimore when he was three years old. He and Kellie lived less than a mile from one another their whole lives and still, it took several years before the two would ever interact with one another. The couple shared the same first job at a local daycare and even went to the same high school. Although they were always in close proximity to one another, they never had much communication.
Kellie went off to college at Hampton University to pursue a degree in Nursing, and Elijah went to Towson University to pursue his degree in Information Technology. With the power of social media, they were able to reconnect and soon the love affair would begin. Elijah started sending Kellie messages on Facebook. He started making small talk and asking her for medical advice. Even though she knew that he was obviously interested in something more than her expert opinion, she played along and before she knew it, she was hooked. Kellie quickly realized that Elijah was her soulmate and that they were meant to be together. Never in a million years did either of them think they would end up together, but God truly works in mysterious ways.
Elijah proposed at Rusty Scupper in Baltimore, MD on the evening of August 27th, 2016. This was right after he made a big move to the state of Michigan to pursue his IT career working at Google. Elijah made a public proposal in front of all of the restaurant. "ATTENTION PATRONS OF RUSTY SCUPPER!", he yelled to get the attention of everyone. Followed by Elijah's public confession of his true love for Kellie. The rest was history. Ironically, the table they sat at was the same day of the month (table #27). From that day on, their favorite number was 27 for various reasons :)
Kellie and Elijah are looking forward to creating a powerful union. The thought of them settling down, growing together collectively, and becoming a true black power couple is thrilling to say the least. Kellie stated, "We have been best friends for years, but this next level will only strengthen the bond - #forevermoore, Amen."
