The Secret to Disappointment-Proofing Your Marriage a podcast by Cheri Gregory &Amy Carrol

because it's my wedding anniversary weekend; six years! I listened to this podcast and found great tips for my marriage. It made me aware of how NOT to let perfectionism create strife and disappointment in my marriage. So much freedom in letting go of perfectionism.

Also, because I got to know Cheri this past Spring through a group called the Artist's Bench. Seeing Cheri carry out her vision for a podcast to completion inspires me. I love Cheri's heart for HSP's; the highly sensitive person!
