Welcome New Team Members

It was very exciting to be an American yesterday on Election Day, but it also made me sleepy. I got up at 5 in the morning to make sure I was able to vote because I thought it was going to be very crowded. This was quite a feat for me because I am definitely not a morning person. I walked over to the polling place (about a block away from my house) with my husband in the dark, and by the time we were finished and walking back home the sun had come out, the temperature was warm, the bird were chirping and the sky was sunny and clear. It was such a serene experience, and really too infrequent, so I thought I would seek out some more serenity with these beautiful morning images from some of our newest Etsy team members.
