Last night I was up late watching returns from the midterm elections. There were plenty of heartbreaks, but a thrilling number of firsts as the blue wave is sweeping the House of Representatives.

When I finally fell asleep under my quilt made by American women in Washington, I already knew a record number of my fellow American women—112 so far!—are heading to Congress. Along with a long list of other firsts, they will be changing the face of US government.

Congratulations, America!

Get plenty of rest, Congress. You’ll need it!
