Default ID, please

This variegated ground cover has been growing here in zone 7 for about 5 years with little care. It has blooms that look like tiny balloons or pillows! It has a big spread of nearly 3 ft., but doesn't take root- there's only one taproot- I have taken cuttings to root with no luck. Can someone please tell me it's name? I'm thinking it begins with "p" but not sure.

Maybe one of the creeping thyme like Highland Cream. There lots of them so it would be hard to pin it down.
