When the mister has facial hair, he looks a good 5-10 years older than he actually is. The picture on the left was from our wedding day two years ago and I'm certain our children will look back on it and question if he was even legal to marry. The picture on the right is his current look.
I don't love facial hair. It's scratchy and a few shades off from the color of the hair on his head, but he keeps it around because he's found it helps him in business. Keane manages men twice his age, most of whom have big egos and aren't crazy about taking orders from "a kid." His beard makes him look older and earns him the respect he deserves in his position.
So, although it's not my favorite, I think the beard is here to stay. At lease for the next 5-10 years while his face catches up to his age.
Boy do I love that baby face! Even if it is covered in ginger-ish hairs.
