About Me

I’m Trish Di Stefano: an idealist, recovering perfectionist and weekend glutton. I’m known as Mama to an ultra-lovable goofball named Leo, and am future Mom to a much adored little girl. I’m an aspiring writer, a sometimes yoga instructor, and a full-time marketing specialist. My greatest loves are morning muffins, super floppy paperbacks, and the sound of my husband and son’s conjoined laughter.
