hello,people readers! we’re back!

AND it’s so great! Even though we’ve been working 24/7 on our online platforms, there is just something special about working on a print publication #longliveprint.

1 ANGELINA JOLIE sent a message of support to parents of young kids amid the coronavirus pandemic. The 44-year-old actress and Special Envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees wrote a guest column for Time magazine, and confessed she’s thinking of ‘all the mothers and fathers with children at home’ during the public health crisis. “I was not a very stable youth,” she reflected. “In fact, I never thought I could be anyone’s mom. I remember the decision to become a parent. It wasn’t hard to love. It wasn’t hard to dedicate myself to someone and something greater than my life.” She added, “What was hard was knowing that from now on I needed to be the one to make sure everything was okay.

Despite their price tags being similar to the amount for a deposit on a real house, the owners of Tiny Town Playhomes say they’re inundated with people desperate to keep their kids occupied in extravagant surroundings during lockdown.
