Should I just forgo shaving and make this a Yeard (beard for a year)? While my facial hair would surely grow to lengths of majestic proportions, I’m just not sure if I could last. Summer in MI can be unforgiving enough, let alone with having a small grizzly bear attached to your face. I’ve been growing steady since September and hadn’t made any plans to really shave until Spring. There is still time to really weigh the pros and cons here. Maybe, just maybe, the Yeard!
