My late wife hated facial hair. Nearly every Summer we went on a weeklong camping trip, and I let my beard grow, but then I would shave right when we got home.
My former girlfriend encouraged me to grow a beard. She gave me tons of compliments on it. Then she broke up with me.
She still compliments me on it when we see each other. So I kept the beard.
My girlfriend (who is probably my future wife) has only known me with a beard and loves it. She’s still a little thrown off every time she sees an old picture of me without one. Her vote gets the biggest weight. I’m keeping it.
The basic reaction of people in my life to me with a beard:
1) My parents, my in-laws, my siblings, and my kids don’t like it.
2) Everyone else - friends, coworkers, girlfriend, extended family, random strangers, acquaintances - loves it.
Fathers Day will likely be a day trip to visit my in-laws at the beach.

Overnight oatmeal for breakfast. Cool recipe where you combine oats, almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, and cinnamon and leave it in the fridge overnight. No cooking required - just heat and eat.
I think this Dailies topic is far more interesting than what we usually see from that guy from Wisconsin.
