We have all been there Callie1914. Most members soon pick up lots of helpful advice, it is a good website thanks to the generosity we expect from fellow gardeners. I found this on the RHS website and wonder if your shrub is one of the other larus:-
There are only a few bays to chose from. In the main;
Laurus nobilis 'Aurea' AGM (yellow-leaved bay tree) has golden-yellow foliage
Laurus nobilis AGM (bay tree) is most commonly cultivated and used for culinary purposes
Laurus nobilis f. angustiolia (willow-leaved laurel) has thinner leaves than bay, but they are still edible
