It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and the Idea Specialists™ at Belmont at Park Bridge—the premier name for affordable luxury apartments in Alpharetta, Georgia—are feelin’ the love!
Whether you’re planning on celebrating solo, stepping out with your sweetheart, or picking out just the right gift for your pet, they’re here to help with links and tips, dates and times.
The Languages Of Love
One thing to keep in mind when planning on how to mark this February 14th romantic holiday is what “language” the person you care about speaks when it comes to the way want to be shown love. Pastor and counselor Gary Chapman first created this concept and wrote about it in The 5 Love Languages, which goes into details. The languages are:
No. 1: Words of affirmation
No. 2: Acts of service
No. 3: Gifts
No. 4: Quality time
No: 5: Physical touch

Best Picks For Him & Her
Maybe you’re already fluent in your partner’s language and know that they like the combo of presents with your presence. USA Today has compiled a 2023 Gift Guide with best picks for him and her and options running the gamut from personalized boxer shorts to wildly fun bath bombs.
Looking for something a little more practical? Roost knows what works in gourmet apartment kitchens, and shares the skinny in 9 Space-Saving Kitchen Gadgets For Every Apartment. Why not go ahead and get yourself a Valentine’s Day gift, too? The Idea Specialists™ swear by the Instant Pot Duo Mini 7-in-1.
Belmont at Park Bridge is extremely pet-friendly, allowing residents to have up to two fur-babies per apartment and featuring pet stations throughout the community. So of course the Idea Specialists™ were delighted with this fun find at 1800-Flowers for your Fido—a squeaky plush toy bottle of “champawgne” and accompanying flute.
For your feline bestie, they found a “purrrfect” catnip-laced pounce toy at nearby Hollywood Feed on McGinnis Ferry Road.

💕💕 ‘Belmonte’ at Park Bridge 💕💕
Did you know that Belmont comes from Belmonte? That’s “beautiful mountain” in Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian, and it’s been used as a proper name throughout the centuries to refer to a certain sort of inhabited terrain. And on that note, the Idea Specialists™ will say ciao!
