Nearly 3 years ago the beard was born, and I decided to let the beard grow. You may have read the many reasons why I decided to originally grow the beard in my first blog, so…. The blog begins.
What else has happened within the last 3 years? Where do I begin, there are many things from multiple holidays to the obvious birthdays and massively the big shave. Although the big shave is not the most ideal situation, it is a very proud moment for me. I’m very happy to have raised over £600 for the make a wish foundation , to bring happiness to someone! Just over 2 years ago my girlfriend and I got together for our first date, and up until the big shave she had never seen me without a big bushy beard. This made my big shave ever so daunting and nerve-racking for me! But she was very calm and supportive. To be truthful she was the one to support me and push me into starting this blog and promoting my beardiful adventures. (That’s enough soppy for now)
Throughout this time I also have undergone jaw surgery to align my teeth correctly. This was a wierd and crazy experience that has gone extremely well. My teeth feel alot better in their alignment. But the surgery did take it’s toll, with my body losing energy for over 6 weeks after. I won’t bore you with all details but the most perculiar part was going on a full liquid diet whilst the nerves we’re repairing.
Although the past few years have been crazy I have not spent it without the beard, whether that be frozen up a ski slope or absorbing vitamin D on a beach. The beard will have many more happy adventures.
