Let's start at the very begining, a very good place to start...

In September 2003 Olivia M. Leavitt met a young man by the name of Rustin L. Odom. They became acquaintances and Olivia was even able to attend Rusty's baptism into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Oct. 25, 2003.



Little did either of them know that they would become more than just friends. By Fall of 2004, they were now neighbors and were working together on film projects for Rusty's film company Karma Creek Pictures. During this time they started dating and things just fell into place.




On May 13, 2005 Olivia graduated from Eastern Arizona College with her Associates in Theatre & Cinematic Arts.




But there was even better news because it was that night that Rusty proposed to Olivia in the most perfect way imaginable!
video
This is the video Rusty showed when he proposed in the EA Fine Arts Auditorium. It's really difficult to read the poem he wrote, but trust me, it's really sweet. He then took me up on stage and proposed in front of all our friends and family.
(Rusty said he would fix the video quality but I didn't want to wait)
So, despite Olivia saying she would never get married in the Summer, she was Sealed to the Love of her life for all time and Eternity on August 6, 2005 in the Mesa Arizona Temple.

Definitely one of the best days of her life!

To be with the greatest guy and to get to start a family with him!










More to come and I promise to stop talking in third person!
Until then...

Just starting.

So, I saw that all the family had a blog and I felt a little left out. Therefore, I am starting my own. It has been a while since we have talked to everyone and thought we could use some catching up. My first few blogs will most likely be a "catch-up" on the past year. It will be mostly pictures, since that can speak more than words. I am still trying to figure out how this all works and how to be connected to the whole family... I saw the Bruce and Velate Leavitt family page and I was like, "What about us? How do we get on there?". It may be a while before I get it all caught up but I really don't have a life so it's okay! :) So yeah!! wish me luck!
