My name is Jilda Leigh and I’ve had the privilege of being born and bred in the South. I grew up , and have lived my entire life in a small community called Killian, South Carolina. As the Brooks & Dunn song goes, "life begins and ends on the red dirt road." True statement indeed. This is where my roots are.
I have one beautiful daughter and four gorgeous grandchildren. I am in the middle of five living generations. We all live within about a 6 mile radius of each other, on the compound. None of us live too far from the compound. That’s were my life is. This is where my roots are.
I enjoy watercolor painting, am an avid Jimmy Buffett fan (you know us Parrotheaeds), a football junky (Go Gamecocks!), and a big fan of anything my momma cooks! Music is a must! My music library is vast and very eclectic. I listen to everything from Duke Ellington and Etta James to Linkin Park and Metallica. If there isn’t music in my day, there’s a problem somewhere because I’m thinking too much. , I am an avid writer, a voracious reader. I read every day – about a book a day.
I believe if you don't read and write every day, you don't grow as a person. You must continue to learn.
