This week featuring: Violet Resnick, Sam Small, and baby Simona
Where they grew up: Sam grew up in LA and Violet grew up in Seattle and Bellingham

Favorite travel memory: Going on a 5-day trek to Machu Pichu and realizing, upon reaching it, that the hike there was better than the destination.

Things they like to do: Sam and Violet love the outdoors and it's part of what brought them to Seattle. They also love playing board games, especially on Shabbat!

Violet's current favorite game: Code Names

Sam's current favorite game: Pandemic

One thing about their life right now: After ten years of being together and moving around the country they are really happy to back on the West Coast and closer to family.
