before & after: dave

Did you know there’s a word for people who love beards? Pogonophile. I’m not sure if I would necessarily identify as someone who loves beards but I do love someone who has a beard. Or did, rather.

Last week, Dave proclaimed that “on the next two back-to-back days where the temperature is above freezing, I’m shaving.” March 10th and 11th were those days. So yesterday found him out on the deck with the clippers slowly shearing off six months’ worth of beard. His first shave since the wedding.

For those of you who might not have seen Dave in awhile, here he is in all his bearded glory.


ta-DA! No beard! (I’m glad he left some stubble).
