My Naked Face Husband

Matt shaved.  He got a new job that, really, he is very well suited for--a produce clerk at a small, old-fashioned (at least in my opinion) grocery store.  But, they have a store policy against beards.  So, he shaved.  I was shocked he was willing to do it.  I'd never seen his face before--aside from childhood photos--and never expected to in all my life.  I cried.  Oh, how I cried.  I just loved that beard.  I know that its only hair.  And he's still my incredible Matty, so hard-working, funny, and kind.  (And handsome, of course.)  But still.  I remain in shock.  I can't believe it.  As we spread the word to friends and family, neither can anyone else.
I think it makes him looks ten years younger.

  1. Change is different for sure! I grew up with a dad who had a ponytail. One day he had my mom braid it & cut it off (and jokingly gave it to my Gma as a "gift" lol). It's still fairly long-ish though, below his chin.

    Your hubby looks nice regardless!

    1. Thank heavens Matt still has his ponytail. When I cut off my dreadlocks I squirreled them away in a keepsake trunk. I still have them, somewhere.

  2. Oh my goodness what a big difference in his appearance! I find the idea of a "no beard policy" somewhat disturbing though..Hope he enjoys the job!

    1. I know, right?! I can't believe they can even ask him to do it. I almost told him not to take it, but...

  3. Wowzers! Still handsome, as you said. My husband did the same thing many years ago. It took some getting used to, as i do like a man with facial hair.
    Congrats to Matt on the new job!!!

    1. Yes, he's still handsome, but I like them more...ruggedly handsome, in general. He could keep a mustache, but I don't like them without the whole beard package. So, naked faced...at least for a while.

  5. How strange a feeling that you're seeing your husband a way you've never seen him before. A true test of love! :D
