My wife still has the Anne Geddes book on the table, so I could not resist putting it back in the photo background. Mitchell and Taylor are twins (5 weeks). Mitchell (left) was snoring at the time. The boots were made especially for the photo.

Omega Wooden Handle
Dovo Bismarck 5/8
Agressia Fresh SC
Arko Aqua AS Gel
Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS

A wonderful, relaxing, and slow shave this morning which I finally had the time to enjoy. I was able to gather up the courage to use my Dovo Bismarck, and I hope to be able to do this more often. The Agressia Fresh cream from Bulgaria was a gift from a very good friend of mine who lives in Russia, and it lathers so rich and thick, it smells nice, and it has excellent skincare. Although menthol is listed as an ingredient, there's really no cooling sensation, but the Arko Aqua gel and the Aqua Velva took very good care of me that way!
