Kilo. Kilo is a complete sentence. Someone can just say, “Kilo” to me and there’s a common understanding of what it means. It’s just Kilo. When she came into my life a little over two years ago, she had the cutest little under-bite and eyes only for her Daddy. Jeffrey and I were just friends,... Continue Reading →
