I grew a "Summer Beard*" over these past few months. A few days ago I shaved it off, and started growing what I'm hoping will become my "Fall Beard."
The real trick will be convincing my wife to let me keep the "Spring Mustache."
*For the record, a Summer Beard does not make your face hotter. In fact, on those most humid of days, if you throw a little bit of water in your Summer Beard it actually keeps your face cooler. And now you know.
