So long, Jacksonville

So long, Jacksonville, FL. I can't say that I'll miss it, but I can definitely say that I'm so glad I got to live there. I spent 90% of my time there alone. Legit alone...my husband was deployed and I had no friends or family anywhere nearby. When you're the only person you have to physically talk to, you learn a lot about yourself. I had to either embrace it or curl up in a ball and cry for a year. Embrace it, I did. I've never been one to avoid the hard stuff, and this past year was no different.

Don't get me wrong, I cried. A lot. I called home, binge watched netflix, and even frequented the Super Target (best store ever, by the way. I had only ever seen a regular one before Jacksonville.) But I also had nothing but time to work on myself, create my own happiness, heal old wounds and get real help in healing my belly. Oh, and I started a business. Go big or go home, as they say.

I'm definitely not the woman I was a year ago, and I'm ok with that. I have more clarity about what I want in life, and I'm not afraid to ask for it. I'm more evolved in how i handle relationships, I don't even know what worrying is, and I've learned how to successfully say no.

I came out on top of this year of solitude, so thank you so much for being my friend, Jacksonville. Thank you for your palm trees and your Super Targets, but most importantly, thank you for your central air conditioning, because honestly, you're too darn hot for me, and I can't wait for cloudy, chilly Washington.

Live Life Creatively...What the heck does that mean?

Living Life CreativelyCait SherrickComment

The more and more I pour my heart into Leocadia K. and my art, the more I find myself thinking that live life creatively sounds so fun and free, but what the heck does that even mean? And, if I'm thinking it, then you're for sure thinking it too.

In an effort to put my feelings into words, I did some soul-searching to answer that exact question for ya.  So, if you’re just not that sure what it means to live life creatively, read the Leocadia K. Manifesto below. 

It’ll leave you feeling creative, empowered and loved.


MANIFESTO. noun.
/ˌmanəˈfestō/

A written statement to publicly declare your intentions, motives, or beliefs.
From the Latin manifestus — to manifest, to clearly reveal, to make real.


Leocadia K.  is living life creatively. 
It’s every day, right now.  This moment.  This breath.  This body.
Constantly creating and recreating yourself in new present moments. 
Never growing old, just refreshing.
The present moment is creative.
Be present, and you’re already living creatively – no artistic talents needed.

It’s a fresh perspective, a full heart, the unique creative expression of you right now.
Adapting, renewing, embracing the beauty of not knowing. What a relief to not know.  
It’s an organized wandering through life.  Your very own imperfect, eclectic path.
Be a flow-goer and you’re already living creatively – no special skills needed.

Leocadia K. is modern, feminine, worldly.
Effortless curiosity, humble elegance, casual sophistication.  It’s classy as fuck.
It’s exploration, discovery, visual interest.
Always expecting to see something incredible.  It’s fully engaging with the world.
It’s a warm cup of chai tea, a hug, a long savasana.
Leocadia K. is love.  You are love.
Love like you and you’re already living creatively – no creative gifts needed.

This is what living life creatively means to me and Leocadia K., but what does living life creatively mean to you?  Let me know in the comments below!

Love, Light & Warm Cups of Chai Tea,
