About Me

New Years Eve 2013
Hello, my name is Brittainy. First thing you should know about me is that I’m a daughter of Christ, a sinner saved by grace. I love me some Jesus. He is my everything and has been my rock and light throughout my 26 years. The name of my blog comes from my favorite hymn “Come Thou Fount”. I feel like this perfectly describes my life right now, but really it should never stop. I want to always be in the process of letting God tune my heart to be more like His!


I have been happily married to a wonderful man and my best friend for 3 years. We met through MySpace. That’s right MYSPACE. Come to find out that not only did we have a few friends in common but we lived a mere 5 minutes from each other! We met up at a Dairy Queen in July of 2007 after a week of talking online and that was it. We saw each other every day for a whole year and have only really been apart maybe ten days since. We are pretty big homebodies and most of our evenings consist of snuggling down to watch our favorite shows with our two cats. And I like it that way.

My Classroom

 I’m a pre-school teacher which means I get to sing, play with glitter, and use a plethora of stickers on a daily basis and this makes me SO HAPPY. But it is SO much more than that. I love these babies so much and shed a tear at the end of each year. They play with my hair, show me their karate moves, make me invisible coffee, and draw me pictures. They compliment some part of my outfit on a daily if not hourly basis and give me spontaneous hugs throughout the day. I walk in the room and hear “MISS BRITTAINY!!!” and my love and patience (because let’s be honest, I need it) are renewed each morning.  I count myself blessed to have this job and to be a part of their little lives. I LOVE what I do. And I’m like the shyest person I Know so working with little children all day and NOT having to make small talk on a regular basis totally suits me.

Aside from Jesus, my marriage, my job, and my cats, a few other things you’ll read about here are books that I read, recipes I try, crafts that I…craft, my love for all things vintage, and all the other beautiful little things that make up my life. So glad you’re here! Let’s be friends.
