Grant Petersen

This is a picture of Grant, Heather's boyfriend, getting a haircut for his mission. As my wife said, "he is actually a lot more handsome than that, though you wouldn't appreciate it."

What can I say? My taste runs to a blond in her forties, but Heather seems to think Grant looks just fine.

Which lets me write on a topic I see again and again "Why won't he/she just ignore how I look and see the real me?" You mean the one that is interested in them only for the way they look? Grant is a really good kid, better looking on the inside than the outside, and I think he will grow into a fine missionary in Seattle. One of the few people who is better off when people ignore how he looks and see the real person.

I think that just about everyone benefits when people look past their appearance--

speaking from the perspective of a small, not-unnatractive blonde woman.

People tend to think I'm unintelligent, naieve, careless, not worth listening to... until they get to know me. IF they ever bother to exert the effort :)

congrats on your boyfriend-in-law's mission call.
