Here is Kevin at the five week point in growing his beard. After his appendectomy, he decided to let it grow out for awhile, since he hadn't shaved for several days while staying in the hospital.
I can't say that I was a big fan and got rather impatient for him to shave it off--January 21st was Ultimatum Day. But, he always lets me do whatever I want with MY hair. So I figured I should be just as obliging.
The funny thing was, after he shaved it off, I felt this huge sense of relief. As long as he had his beard, he didn't quite feel like the husband that I know and love. My Kevin finally came back to me!! No longer would a bearded stranger be coming home from work to my house every day. They say it's a compliment if women don't like you with facial hair because it means that they like your face unobstructed. :) All those weeks, I missed my ol' Kev!!
