Over the last week, I’ve gotten a few compliments on the name Where The Dogwood Blooms. Thank you! I wish I could take credit for coming up with it, but that honor goes to Bug. And, y’all, she nailed it! I wanted a meaningful blog title representative of our home state. A name that brought to mind everything sweet and beautiful in North Carolina.
Unable to come up with a title on my own, I enlisted the fam’s help. We talked about longleaf pines, mountains, beaches, and state symbols. I drove everyone plumb crazy for weeks, trying to find THE name. When I was ready to just pick something out of a hat, Bug suggested Where The Dogwood Blooms. As soon as it fell out of her mouth, I knew it was the one.
It’s a play on Where the Red Fern Grows, a sacred place – touched by an angel.
