Overwhelmed With Support For Together, Apart: Life During The Coronavirus




We are so overwhelmed with everyone's support with our children's book Together, Apart: Life During the Coronavirus!

We are thankful to have been interviewed on 580 CFRA, 1310 News, CTV Ottawa Morning Live, CTV Noon, CBC Ottawa, Orleans Star, and Ottawa Matters. The support and kind words, feedback, and images we have received from people who have purchased and shared our book have made us so incredibly happy and grateful. You can see more pictures on my Instagram page, too, under my book highlights.

We are still selling books, and catching up with orders, so thanks for your patience, as the mail delivery is a little slower these days. (You can either have your books mailed to you, or you can pick up from either my house or my mom's house, too, and we also drop off books to those who may not be able to travel right now).

After receiving many requests for Together, Apart to be translated into French, we are happy to let you know that the book is now available in French!

I love how many teachers are buying the book for their schools, and reading the book to their classes online, and sharing the feedback from the children. It's so touching to see how this book has made a positive impact on children who are living through this temporary reality, and who are comforted by the book.

You can place your book orders through me (loukiazigoumis@gmail.com) and you can find out more information on Facebook.com/togetherapartbook. Our book is also for sale at Ottawa's Tag Along Toys and at The Merry Dairy


Thank you, everyone. For your wonderful feedback, kind words, and support with our book, and for helping us give back to CHEO and Kids Help Phone.

Summer Of Colour: Top Gardening Trends With #PCGarden And A Gardening Giveaway

I admit it... I don't have much of a green thumb, but I love beautiful gardens and flowers in the summer. Whether it's at my place, my in-law's, or my parent's home, I appreciate pretty flowers and a lovely garden, and so do my children. Now that the first long weekend of summer is behind us, we're totally in summer mode. I was even motivated to get my garden ready. However you're imagining your outdoor living space, I'm sure it involves some greenery, plants, vegetables, and flowers, right? It just makes everything look and smell so much prettier! President's Choice has excellent Garden Centres so you can pick up all all you need in one place. And  they make it easy for you, too, because they'll be able to answer your questions, and they already have in store what you're looking for, from the latest trends (think bright, happy colours with dazzling shades and hues) to the gardening tools. This year, I wanted to bring more colour into my h

Happy To Be A ShoeMe.ca Shoe Style Ambassador (Plus A Shoe Giveaway!)

Shopping, as you all know, is a passion of mine. I love sharing shopping news with my readers and friends and letting everyone know about fantastic deals, new products I love, and great new sites that are worth checking out. When it comes to retail therapy, there is nothing quite like shoe shopping. Several weeks ago, I was approached by Shoeme.ca  and was asked if I wanted to be their Shoe Style Ambassador . I said YES! YES! YES! quickly, without hesitation, because, well, shopping and shoes? What's not to love? Sigh... Shoeme.ca is an online Canadian shoe store that carries all the brands you love: Nine West, Sam Edelman, Geox, Hush Puppies, Stride Rite, Timberland, UGG, ECCO, Crocs, Converse, Donald J Pliner, BCBG, and so much more. They have such a great selection of shoes for everyone in your family—women, men, and children—and they provide amazing customer service, like free express shipping, (I received my shoes in one day!) and free returns. Shopping online has s

Take The Pledge And Raise A Food Lover

We all lead busy lives—from juggling work to extra-curricular activities, sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough hours in a day to get it all done. Trying to find the perfect balance can be challenging, but one thing remains constant in my household: connecting around the dinner table. Coming from a Greek family, dinnertime was always a priority, no matter how busy our days were, and this is a tradition we’ve kept with our children. Now that our boys are older (13 and 10 years old) my husband and I often get them to help out when it comes to dinner preparation, and even cooking; I’m happy to say that my even my youngest son can make a delicious homemade tomato sauce, with some ingredients coming from our own backyard vegetable garden, like basil, tomatoes, oregano, and onions.   Growing a garden was a new venture for us this summer, and one we thoroughly enjoyed. It made meal time prep more fun, and also forced us all to eat more vegetables than we were used to.
