Find out more about the deepest principle in human nature by reading the latest blog from Mary Alice Higbie. 📖 
Here is a quote from the thoughtful piece:
“As I rub elbows with others in my sphere, I must remind myself that I am their mirror, reflecting back what I see or at least what I choose to see. 📖
I can choose to reflect back a cursory, skin-deep image, or I can look deeply, find and reflect the person’s deep human value back to them, and so honor them as a fellow member of humanity.” From Mary Alice’s new blog: “A Creative Impulse for Good.”

Do you have fond memories of our old Tearoom that was near Albuquerque’s Old Town?
Tell us below!
⚡️ Rachel has been coming to The St. James Tearoom since she was a little girl and now she works with us!
⚡️ Her mother went to the old Tearoom near Old Town in Albuquerque and brought her to tea for the first time when she was 5 years old.
⚡️ They have been taking pictures of their experiences ever since.
⚡️ She remembers enjoying tea with her aunts and her grandmother but mostly with her mother. On a special occasion, she even wore one of her great-grandmother's dresses! (2nd picture). ⚡️ “You remember the company you have more than the food,” she said when asked if she remembered the teatime treats from her childhood. 
But she does love the Middle Earth-themed menu. ⚡️ Rachel has enjoyed growing up visiting the Tearoom. She says it has helped her cultivate her relationship with her parents and her friends.
⚡️ She has faced challenges and enjoyed triumphs through the many years she has been a part of The St. James Family.
We have so enjoyed her being a part of our staff.
⚡️ Thank you, Rachel, for brightening our day and for being committed to Excellence!

⚡️ For these Wizarding World-inspired scones, we imagine The Groundskeeper making them with whatever he has on hand, so you can play with the additions to make them just how you would like them. ⚡️ We went with a fairly traditional mix of dried fruits and nuts that will complement any fall tea party. 
Serve these warm from the oven with butter and our “Mulled Cider Scented Black” tea for a simple, yet delicious treat.
⚡️ Rock Cakes.
⚡️ Makes about 15 scones.
⚡️ Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ⁄4 cup sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. cold butter cut into small pieces
1 ⁄2 cup dried cherries, chopped small
1 ⁄4 cup golden raisins
1 ⁄4 cup dried apricots, chopped small
1 ⁄4 cup walnuts, chopped small
1 1 ⁄2 cups cream
Melted butter and coarse sugar for topping.
⚡️ Instructions:
⚡️ Preheat oven to 350° F. Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
In a food processor, process butter and flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Toss in dried fruits and nuts and stir.
Add the cream and mix gently, just until the dough comes together and there are no dry areas.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake at 350° F for about 17 minutes. Serve warm with butter.

This September, during National Courtesy Month, we encourage you to rise above the chaos of daily life and be consciously courteous all month long. 
In a world that asks so much from us with our full schedules, our demanding jobs, and hurried lives, we believe in rising above the chaos of daily life by offering empathy, understanding, and respect to everyone. 
We’ve all experienced unexpected moments of courtesy, where someone paid for your meal, held a door open for you, or perhaps let you go ahead of them in line. Be an ambassador for kindness and respect by looking for an opportunity every day to be a bright spot in someone else’s life!
A small gesture doesn’t take much of our time, but it can mean the world to someone else.
Let's continue to be there for one another in our words and in our actions.
Enjoy #NationalCourtesyMonth!

Leave some butter beer 🍻 below if you agree with this quote! 🍻 “They say that we should treat every person we meet as if they were going through a great catastrophe or severe crisis, and that more than half the time we will be right. Sometimes the disaster will be evident on the surface, and sometimes it will be hidden deep inside.”--Mary Alice
Tag a friend who encourages you and helps you get through the challenges you face...
Happy National Day of encouragement!
Let's continue to lift up the people around us, we need each other. :)
🍺

What is your favorite magical creature in the Wizarding World?
🦉
What if you could attach a thoughtful letter to an owl and send it to a good friend or family member? What would you say? How would you encourage and uplift that person?
🦉 “Connection is the essence of correspondence. When I write a letter I want to build in strength and confidence, joy, and celebration, and anything meaningful that I can.” --Mary Alice.
🦉 
The art of correspondence allows us to connect on a deep level, it allows us to go beneath the surface. 🦉 
Special thanks to the Wildlife Rescue of New Mexico for showing us these magical creatures at one of our Special Events last week.

We want to congratulate one of our new shift leaders in the St. James Kitchen!

He is determined, focused, goal oriented, and does excellent work for The St. James Tearoom.
