|The strong beautiful women of the FamiLee. Nana on the right, Becky next to her|
and I on the left make up The FamiLee Jewels. My sister Donna is center and our niece Jessica to her left.
The FamiLee Jewels started in 2007. The jewelry that we started making as a hobby was overtaking our homes and we needed and outlet for it.
The discussion to choose a name was a spirited one.
We are a FamiLee of strong women.
My Mom, Ella (Nana to her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren), the matriarch of our group raised 4 children on her own while going to school for an accounting degree to improve her job prospects. She sets the example for the rest of us to live up too.
We are steel willed and opinionated but kind and compassionate too, having been taught by Nana that we are fortunate to have been born in a country that allows us to influence our own destinies. She has always given back to her community through volunteerism and the rest of us were raised to do so.
We are a family of overachievers with high expectations of ourselves and each other.
We are as my sister Donna says "The glue that holds this family together".
Becky was the one to suggest that our name be The Family Jewels. We chuckled at her recommendation but kept coming back to it.
Isn't each member of our family a precious gem?
Don't we cherish one another more than personal riches?
What could be better?
It turned out only the spelling.
With a last name like Lee we couldn't resist the sybolism of changing the spelling to The FamiLee Jewels.
