  3. I giggled when I heard about the beard descended to his chest- woodchippings in his hair! Great podcast and quite informative. I do a blog write up and instagram post every time I showcase a client album and it is always the worst part. I always end up wanting to write “LOOK I post pretty pictures”. I know that comes across in my writing as well. I don’t write to engage and it’s sad that I have these feelings every time I post. Once I heard about “what a real man looks like” I knew I had to change that. Thank you, once again, for the wonderful write up and podcast.
