Hi. My name is Leigh. It has been a tough few years for me. In 2010, my son graduated from high school. In 2011, he moved out on his own - happy for him - but suddenly I discovered the "empty nest". Later in 2011, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, stage IIIC. I underwent a radical hysterectomy. My mother also became bed bound due to her health conditions. I have to be honest. I sunk into a deep depression and was playing the "poor me" card. I went through 6 months of chemo treatments, lost my hair, went through a lot of emotional roller coasters. In 2013, I decided I needed to move closer to my mom because her health was steadily declining. I was offered in a job in my beautiful home state of Va. I also reconnected with my soul mate. In April 2013, I moved back to Virginia to take on the new job and be closer to my mom. She passed away in Feb. 2014. I have been spiraling downwards since then and finally picked my head up to say no more depression. In the meantime, I have gained all the weight I had lost previously and then some. I now have 50 pounds to lose. My body has been affected by the cancer treatments. I'm hoping this journey will get easier as time goes by. I had to put my beautiful shepherd and pomeranian down in July due to their health and old age. I still have my beautiful male shepherd. I am engaged to my soul mate and he has spent many hours changing my life. I have had the pleasure of visiting Hawaii and more recently Ireland. Yes, life has taken a turn for the better. Life each day and make every moment count because in the end we will realize it is the little moments that counted the most.

Personal Information:
Originally from Axton VA I lived in Fort Myers Fl. for over 23 years. I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains and thought I always hated the cold. Once I had the radical hysterectomy, I was thrown immediately into menopause. I moved back to the mountains and now appreciate the cooler weather.

I enjoy photography, scrapbooking, reading and jogging when I have the time. I have 2 teenage boys - men now - who live on their own. I have 1 black and tan shepherd. Life is good. My motto - Living Life Well!
