First post ever - 30+ year stache, 3 week goatee, 2 week sides
It's really surprising to me that I am growing my first beard at this point in my life and also that I am posting my story about it here.
I've had a solo mustache for over 30 years so this change is not easily accepted by family. I was motivated to grow out my beard after seeing a few other beards that had growth similar to what I am expecting for myself. I'm pretty psyched about my prospects and plan to grow for at least 3 months.
I started to grow just the goatee the first week, then I let the sides begin the second week so what you see in these pictures is 30+ year stache, 3 week goatee and 2 week sides. I'm liking the color contrast of gray beard to blond/gray hair on top and it seems to me that the front is coming along at a pretty good clip. I'd really like to know what you think.
Interesting to see some dark hairs under the chin which don't seem to match the color any other head hairs. Don't know what to do about that.
