Shaved my 18-month beard off today.

@aa how do you feel about it? Mine (though only seasonal) comes off tomorrow for Easter, which has been my recent tradition. I’m always a little surprised about my face. 😁

@toddgrotenhuis I dig having my face back but I don’t recognize myself! Also look five years younger.

@Munish I am certainly welcoming that 5 o’clock shadow to come through!

@aa @munish @toddgrotenhuis Every time I’ve shaved my beard off, I immediately regret it when I realize I look like I’m 12. 😂

@aa @pimoore Shaved off a good 10 month’er (had to go back and think about the timeline) today. Feels surprisingly nice? Though I don’t recognize myself again.

@bgilham it’s a lot nicer for mask wearing I’ll give it that, and I always enjoy feeling the cool pillow on my face again. I just wish I didn’t have such a baby face. 🤷🏻‍♂️

@pimoore We just got in from a walk and I was not prepared for how cold my face would feel!

@bgilham I made that mistake in February a couple of years ago. 🥶

@josephaleo I knew I was opening myself up for this. 😂 If I make the mistake of shaving it off again you’ve got a deal.

@pimoore yeah, you aren’t exaggerating! Ready for the scruff to come in!

@bgilham it does feel nice to “start over”...still jumping when I see myself in the mirror though!
