For everyone who wants to live a beautiful life — a life that includes being your best self, having a happy home, a love of travel and a hunger for simple beauty in your everyday. We share new content every Monday, Wednesday and, Friday.
We also believe small-town living is something to be proud of, we love supporting small and local shops and pride ourselves in sharing inclusive clothing brands.
You will also find family-friendly travel guides, beauty hacks, and we even dive into prenatal depression and anxiety. It is so important to share real-life moments, the messy ones that are almost always hidden from social media. It’s not our job to highlight only our success but also our everyday mess.
How did you and your husband meet?
I get this question all the time so I wrote about how we met in high school here!
What does SPVLiving mean?
SPV is my name, Stephanie Penny Vainer-Living. I wanted it to be something that was mature but also had a lot of room for growth. I plan on developing our brand into something more.
Why did you stop teaching?
I was an Early Childhood Educator and I loved (and still do) working with children. My passion was always in teaching, and I learned so much in those few years. But as soon as I had my daughter Penelope I knew in my heart I couldn’t leave her to return to work. I know the education system and I just think she deserved me staying home with her. I’ll share more about this topic in a future blog post.
