New Pen Name - Mountain Laurel

Did you notice the change? While searching for a good pen name, I typed the name of my favorite flower into Google and discovered that Mountain Laurel has several meanings close to my heart.

The Mountain Laurel in the Tennessee hills is as dear to my heart as the memories of living on Walden's Ridge near Dayton, Tennessee where my two sons were born. The cool misty mountain air; hiking the winding trails with friends; listening to the soft bird calls or thunder of the waterfalls!

The Mountain Laurel is also the state flower of Connecticut where I found my long-lost mother.

And, I discovered a website by that name where you can take a journey into the heart of the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains where we used to live and where the Mountain Laurel flourish! The site
http://www.mtnlaurel.com/ is called The Mountain Laurel.

These are very positive vibes that I hope to always pass on to you, my reader!

Take Care on the Journey,

I also love the mountain laurel! Aren't their sweet little cup-like flowers cunning?
