    Default Exquisitely Me and I are getting married in 9 days.

    Diana and I (who some of you will recall met on here) are getting married in a hot air balloon during the Albuquerque balloon fiesta. We've been together for 3 and a half years now (and engaged for 2 and a half years today) so I owe this place a lot.

    I also owe it an apology. I left in the middle of March Madness. I have bad anxiety attacks and start hiding when things don't go as planned out of embarrassment. I probably worried some of you and I'm sorry about that. We're doing well, pretty darn well really.

    I think we're going to try and make a perfume on our wedding night. Hopefully it won't be a total disaster.

    How very cool!!! Much happiness to the both of you!!! Since the chili perfume thing was recently done by Thierry Mugler do you want to share your proposed recipe? Really on your wedding night???

    I was always hoping for this moment! I think it's wonderful when really great people can get together like that. It's more than just encouraging. It's really kind of storybook. The fact that you two took off for beautiful New Mexico together - all the more storybook.

    HUGE congratulations!

    (And if it's any consolation about the March Madness thing, I think people here felt a little guilty for letting their attentions wander so badly. After the previous successes, it really seemed odd that we just let it slide. The reality is that the noise of people's daily jobs and stuff, in aggregate across the world, are so random, that any such project is at the mercy of forces well beyond our best intent and strongest efforts. Timing is everything. You can understand why perfume launches are so nerve-wracking and fraught with danger - but at least those don't always have to be in March.)

    You'll have to blog about your wedding night perfume. Perhaps just the formula - we'll take your word about the results of the focus group testing!
