A long engagement WOW or WOE?

I'm engaged to the love of my life... that's a big WOW.. so here's the story from then to now..I got engaged on July 4th 2015 (yes, America won its freedom on July 4th and I lost my mine... in a great way ofcourse!) Soon after, my wedding was set for July 2016.  In our culture the time between the engagement and the wedding is generally short. When I say short it can be as short as one month.

So if these microns are tiny, how can they be harmful right? Well some research says that these tiny particles are suspended in the atmosphere, and when we breathe them in they can cluster on the lining of our lungs. So what
