It wasn’t until the Auburn-FSU college football championship when Grant came to come stay with […]

  They were both in sixth grade. Their first time meeting was at a flashlight tag party. Nothing says¬†love like running from the other person so they don’t catch you. ūüôā I’d say Chrisi was playing hard to get…wouldn’t you?
