April is National Poetry Month and today the Hampton Gardens Blog has some ideas to share about how to get into the spirit of the occasion right here in St. Louis, MS. National Poetry Month was established twenty-one years ago by the Academy of American Poets to celebrate poets and poetry.

We invite residents of our apartment community to take part too. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Hampton Gardens is pleased to provide amenities which make our residents’ lives easier, and having on-site laundry facilities is just one of the perks we provide.

March is here, bringing with it several holidays. Today The Hampton Garden Blog takes a look at Pi Day, the most popular March holiday next to St. Patrick’s Day. To start, how about a bit of Pi Day trivia? In an episode of Star Trek, Mr. Spock stopped an evil entity that had taken over the Enterprise’s computer system, ordering it to “compute to the last digit the value of Pi.” Now that’s using some logic! And perhaps Buzz Lightyear was on a quest to find π, based on his catchphrase, “to infinity and beyond.” We may never know, but we can comfort ourselves with a slice of pie, right? Read More

January 2017. It’s a new month. It’s a new year. It’s time to make resolutions for the coming year, and today the Hampton Gardens blog has ideas. But first, take a mental assessment of the last year and pat yourself on the back for all of the accomplishments, projects, and goals you have completed. Better yet, make a written list and then use that information as a base point for coming up with some resolutions for this year. Unfortunately, a disheartening statistic is that only eight percent of the New Year’s resolutions that are made are actually followed through to fruition. Today’s blog will focus on some tips to follow so you, along with other Odenton, MD residents, are in that eight percent!
