The Ultimate Lifestylist®

When I trademarked the term Lifestylist® almost 15 years ago I had no idea what I was getting in to. I knew I had a great concept that incorporated everything I was about and wanted my brand to be, and I couldn't be more proud of what we have been able to accomplish.

What I didn't realize is that it was such a great term and brand so many people would try to copy what I do. Talk about being naive...

The great news is that consumers have really embraced what we do, and we are busier than ever. We have stunning new Lifestylist Designed apartment communities opening up in New York - The Hammocks at Canandaigua and The Hammocks at Geneseo. These communities are all about lifestyle, and we love spending the time exploring the roads less traveled and learning what makes these communities so special.

We have also just completed The Hammocks at Millcreek - another beautiful Riedman Companies community that is their first in Pennsylvania. This one was particularly close to my heart - it's in Erie, PA just minutes from where our family has owned a farm since the 1940's and we spent Summers enjoying fruits and vegetables we picked then enjoyed at picnics on the beach.

I've been taking some of the skills and recipes I received from my family and have been busy in the kitchen as well. I pride myself on not only being the Ultimate Lifestylist but also being a pretty good cook, and love entering the State Fair of Texas every year. This year I've already received three 1st place ribbons and one 2nd place one, and that's before the fair has even opened!

At the end of the day I guess I should be flettered by how many people are trying to copy what I do, but there will only be one original Lifestylist, and that's me :)

I hope that you will continue to follow me on my journey  - we have more to share than hours in the day!
