Whenever I post a portrait to my blog, I make the name of the subject the title. Unfortunately, no matter how hard I try to remember this lovely woman’s name, I’m drawing an absolute blank.

I was blessed to be able to take a trip down to Tijuana, Mexico with my roommate about a month ago to build a house with a mission group down there. Our landlord runs the ministry and has opened up the invitation to us to come down and be a part when we can. I’m hoping to make a habit of it, seeing as I’m only five miles from the border. The woman pictured in this photo is who we built the house for. She was warm and friendly and made us a delicious feast for lunch and a huge batch of hibiscus iced tea to keep us hydrated while we worked. She was a bit shy to pose for the camera, but I finally got this sweet shot of her smiling before she laughed and hid her face.
