Throw back Thursday! What’s in a name?

Hey There! Wanna know how we got out name? Here’s the story! xo,Kelly 

 What’s in a Name? Well, hello again! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! We love weekends that are nice and relaxing, not too much of anything planned leaving room for spontaneity and fun! Those are weekends of epicness, yes that is a word. I’m sure you are wondering where we got our name, James and Lily? (If you weren’t wondering just play along. It will be fun.) My name is Kelly for those of you who have been keeping up with our blog you already knew that and for those of you who are new-welcome! I am the designer and owner of James and Lily Jewelry and I’m so glad you have stopped by! There is actually a funny story behind the name that I hope you enjoy. When I first started my business I needed a name to create my tax id number…I promise it gets better. This was a big decision and I wasn’t quite ready to set a name in stone that would be my company. I thought and thought and thought some more.

 Finally, I was told that I didn’t need to stress about the name just yet and I could temporarily name the company (for the tax id) and then change it later on when I decided on the perfect name. What a relief this was because I didn’t want to make a wrong turn on the road to starting my business. “James” is actually my Dad’s name and “Lily” is my adorable little dachshund so together they represented two very important things in my life so I temporarily named my company “James and Lily Jewelry”. I then went on trying to come up with something epic and months went by. “James and Lily” really started to stick and the more I heard it, the more I liked it. Soon, nothing sounded as good and I officially made “James and Lily Jewelry” my company name. I think it is so funny how things work out. Just when you least expect it, you have exactly what you need!

 xo, Kelly
