“When I look into your eyes I can see the razor restrained. But darlin' when I hold you don’t you know I feel the pain...” The pain of your facial hair pricking me in the face when you try to kiss me!

With the start of November, don’t be surprised if you start to see a lot more hair - facial hair and it’s men supporting one another. If you are not aware, it is Movember!

During the month of November each year, Movember is responsible for the budding of moustaches on men’s faces all over the world. Known as Mo Bros, these men raise money and awareness for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

Men start Movember on November 1st with a clean shave. My husband actually started his Movember push 2 weeks ago because we have a vacation planned in the Caribbean during the month and I insisted that he be clean shaven for that trip, but last night, he took to the razor. For the rest of the month, these “hair growing Mo Bros” continue their quest to grow and perfect the best moustaches they can attain, while raising funds for their mo-growing efforts. As wives and girlfriends of these Mo Bros, we support them and are referred to as Mo Sistas!

While this is a silly and fun month, it is a great way to raise money for a good cause. In 2011, over 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world got on board, raising $126.3 million USD for prostate and testicular cancer initiatives!

As my husband shaved off his facial hair last night, we captured it on digital “film”. It was quite the adventure as he created very interesting moustache designs and he had a lot of fun doing it.

“Nothin' lasts forever and we both know faces can change. And it’ hard to hold the handlebar, but let Movember Reign."
