Meet my beautiful family, Joel, Eloise and Eleanor. These three though….they are my whole world. I mean look at them, they are precious and both girls look identical to their daddy. Eloise Scarlett will be 5 in August and Eleanor Gray will be 2 years old in April.  My heart melts a little more as each birthday approaches. I’m sure all you mommas out there can agree.

Eloise is my dragon, she is strong, independent, and fierce. She loves her momma, daddy, and Jesus and isn’t afraid to walk up to a stranger and tell them how much she loves us. She is a superhero princess who will wear a flower in her hair, a batman cap and high top converse all in one outfit. Her creativity is something I stand and watch in amazement. My goal in raising this little beauty is to encourage, accept, and love her with every piece of my soul. Though the road was tough to have her, look at us today, happy, healthy and whole. I am fortunate that God blessed me with something so perfect!

Meet Eleanor, who we call Nora. This kid right here is hilarious and everyone that comes in contact with her loves ever part of her chunky little body. She is so extremely lovable and sweet. I can’t even wrap my head around how she is already almost a year old. Time is a thief and I wish it would slow down.

Joel, this guy right here, he is my best friend. We have been together for 13 years and married 7. He is the sweetest and most gentle human I have ever met. There are 2 things in the world I know for a fact he is crazy about, his 2 girls. Neither of us have to doubt his love because he tells and shows us how much he adores us every single day! Life is pretty easy when it comes to being married to “this guy.”Our family isn’t defined by blood or by our last name, it’s defined by our commitment and love for each other. Family to us, means showing up on the days we need each other the most. It means we have each other’s back. It means we choose to love each other on those tough days when we struggle to even like them. It means we never giving up on each other. This is how our family works. We work hard everyday to make love a priority.

Our roots are deep and we do not fear the wind. Our tribe is strong!

XO, MAC

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
