The story behind the name

My father had an old Nat King Cole record with this song on it. He played it all the time! The way Nat lingers on "Mon" in the opening lyric always made me think he was singing "Mon Alisa", not "Mona Lisa". I felt like he was singing to me (silly I know). It made me feel special and for that reason alone I love it. I still have that old record and will treasure it always.

I chose to use "Mon Alisa" for my business because it recalls so many memories of me feeling good about myself. It serves as an inspiration to do what makes me happy.

So there you go, the story behind the name.
