And we are back!

Hello! I would say sorry for the hiatus but I’m not. We are back from our amazing honeymoon and getting back into the swing of things. I can’t believe it all happened, that we pulled it all off, but man… it feels great to be married! In case you missed it, here is the New York Times article on our engagement. It came out the day we were married… more to come!   Talia Davis, Daniel Haykin Dox Photo By ROSALIE R. RADOMSKY Published: March 10, 2013 Small Garden, Big Yield: A......

A Wedding From A Distance

Daniel and I both have friends and family overseas who cannot make the trek to Denver as well as friends and family in the US who can’t make it either. We wanted to find a way that we could share this day with all of you. We will be webcasting the wedding with the help of Ustream. Go here – http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-haykins – on March 10th, around 4:45pm Denver time, and join us for our wedding! More info to come! 🙂...

Wedding Brain

You’ve heard of baby brain? Well I have wedding brain. I can’t remember anything. Not only can I not remember anything… I have the attention span of a gnat. Seriously. I start to work on something and then I start something else then I think of something else then something jumps into my mind then I do something then… Then I have 72 tabs open in Firefox, 18 different documents open, four different Adobe products open, I haven’t eaten lunch and it’s nearly 4pm. Now, this isn’t just wedding related… this is......

Wedding Attire

I have been sorely neglectful of my guests! I totally forgot to mention what to wear to our wedding and I know there are many questions regarding attire and the religious aspect. Here’s the deal: I am calling for cocktail attire for the wedding. I wouldn’t recommend too much cleavage or a short skirt  but otherwise, cocktail is fine. Ladies, I might recommend bringing a sweater to cover your shoulders simply because it might be cool in the venue. I have also been recommending to people that they bring boots (like uggs)......

Dance Lessons

Yes, you read that correctly… Dan and I have been going to dance lessons. I found a fabulous chick online (yay wedding websites) and just had a really good feeling about her. I contacted her way back around Christmas time and then totally dropped the ball. She was so nice and accommodating with my whole ‘wedding brain’ situation (aka I have the attention span of a gnat and get distracted easily). We finally told her we wanted to schedule and chose to do her five lesson package. We are doing three lessons......

A Holy Bath

Another ancient tradition that comes up around a wedding is that of the Mikvah. It is a place of ritual immersion, a facility used by both men and women (at different times, of course) with a certain amount of fresh water. A woman goes before her wedding and after every period to immerse. This is a woman’s mitzvah (commandment) and a very special one. As for men, many go daily or on Friday before Shabbat begins. And it is a Chabad tradition that everyone, men and women (regardless of where they are......

Auf Ruf?

If you happen to be in Denver, Dan and I hope you can join us on March 2nd at 9:30am at Rodef Shalom for our Auf Ruf. Auf Ruf? What the heck is an Auf Ruf, you ask? Well, every Saturday Jews read a section of the Torah during services.  The weekly parsha, or Torah portion, is scheduled on a cycle to ensure that the entire Torah is read out loud during the course of one year.When the Torah is read aloud in a synagogue, members of the congregation are called up......

A culinary decision

Our wedding is in 18 days. 18 DAYS I SAY! I can’t believe how soon that is. We have planned our wedding relatively fast. One of my brother’s best friends from elementary school used to work for the Knot.com… when I told her we were getting married in 5 1/2 months she was shocked and then proceeded to tell me that the average engagement these days is one year. ONE YEAR! Oy! Anyway, we held our invitations back until we made final decisions on our meal at the wedding. We wanted to......
