The first year or so that I knew Brian the goatee came and went. Here are some examples of what I fell in love with. :)
When we started dating, the goatee became permanent but varied in length as did his hair. Until the winter of 2007 when he decided to grow a beard. That beard was pretty normal and didn't last too long. This winter the beard reappeared and he decided to grow it out. This is what it ended up looking like:
Reluctantly, he decided to shave it, planning for weeks how to make the most of the debeardification process. Thanks to our friend Josh we have awesome documentation. Enjoy!
