Welcome to Posed Perfection, my little space in the blogosphere. I'm Nici and I'm so glad you've stopped by for a visit. Want to know more about Posed Perfection?

My Blog
Posed Perfection isn’t a blog about yoga poses or a photography studio, nor is it a blog about how to be perfect.  It is simply the chronicles of an imperfect, everyday mom sharing tidbits of life, recipes, crafts, and the joy of creating more with less. I love the challenge of repurposing things, finding substitutions in recipes and just making do with what I have to create something special.
Why did I choose the name 'Posed Perfection'? We all love seeing beautifully photographed rooms, delicious foods and angelic children all looking at the camera at the same time. But, what did it take to get those perfect shots? Are there piles of unfolded laundry and stacks of paperwork just outside of the shot? Did the mom have to bribe the kids with a 1 pound candy bar to get them to sit still long enough to take a bazillion pictures for the one good shot? Or, how about the dangerously balanced dirty dishes all over the kitchen counters lurking just outside the view of the camera? The bottom line is we all try to “pose perfection” in life whether it’s in the way we photograph our kids, arrange our homes, or put dinner on the table for our families.  How can we strive for anything less when we were created in the image of a Perfect God? We are all in process. None of us is perfect. It just appears that way online sometimes.

My Family
I have been married to my sweet husband since 1999. We met on a blind date, were married 7 months later, and have weathered the storms together ever since. We are perfect for each other. We have two great kids who are always happy to test out any of my dessert recipes, especially if chocolate is involved.  Most of our days are spent homeschooling and shuffling to piano, baseball and soccer practices. I squeeze in blogging time between subjects in school, activities, and late at night when the house is quiet.
My Faith
I have been a Christian for more than 30 years, and I am still in the process of becoming the person I was meant to be.  The Lord continues to woo me and I continue trying to do things on my own all too often.  I am grateful for His never-ending love and the new mercies He sends each morning. I always joke that my life is a question mark, but the truth is my Savior and Lord, Jesus, knows exactly how, why and when things are to happen. In the ebb and flow of life, I cling to this truth:

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you not to harm you, plans for a hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)
