nothing like new friendships and growing deeper in every relationship, which is what this summer has been about.

austinelgin glad to have a friend in @matthewbarkley. one thing I can always count on him for is to be honest with me no matter the situation. he just tells you how it is.

austinelgin one of my all time greatest portraits ever taken on an iPhone.

I sure am glad to know this guy right here. one of the most talented guitar players and song writers that I know. and on his way to becoming a fantastic photographer.

austinelgin yesterday I spent the afternoon with @great_alejandro. he recently purchased some film cameras. so we went to shoot some, talk about cameras and his stay in Chicago.

this is a shot I took just to show him some phone tricks and it turned into a happy accident.

austinelgin passionate, caring, loving, courageous, gentle, patient, kind. just some of the things I see in Caroline and am encouraged by.
also we are on our way to Dallas to see the Rangers play and spend the night with my dad. PUMPED does not even describe how I feel right now!

austinelgin I enjoy driving. it's a time to relax and just think. but whats even better is when Caroline and I have dance parties (more like I dance and she acts as if we don't know each other). #mygoldenlist

two years ago today I walked Caroline to her front door and asked her to be my girlfriend.
4 years ago was when I first met her at a Hub event and thought oooo who is this attractive girl. the next two years I spent trying to get her to hangout with me. it rarely happened except for yogurt at counter culture, meeting her at booksamillion, driving out to fruiti yogo, and one time being invited over to her house.
now we rarely go a day without seeing each other. we laugh, cry, and share our lives with each other. its been challenging and a learning experience.

but here is to more years of growing with you and closer to you. growing closer to God. walking through life with you. and challenging each other to do great things.

austinelgin was able to meet some really cool people from the DFW region this past week. one of the first things Dustin said to me was that I looked like an avid Instagrammer. let's just say we became good friends after that conversation.

austinelgin this past week I have spent videoing, getting to know hundreds of middle schoolers and some pretty awesome staff along with getting very few hours of sleep at #CampFuego
I would not trade it for anything.
also just in, Camp Fuego mugs are only $8 at the Fuego Store. They keep your coffee oh so hot.

austinelgin "we create moments to document them rather than live them." -Jon Acuff
my brother and I spent the afternoon at the shooting range. he is currently stationed at 29 Palms and so I rarely get to see him.
my brother showed me how to change the oil in my car, pushed me to be better at sports, and many other things. like today he taught me how to shoot a pistol the correct way.
we created these moments to live in not for the sake of documented like so many of us do.

austinelgin today I was able to hangout with Mr. Trey Freeman (@treyfreemanlsu). we explored a building and made some memories. never a dull moment.

if you aren't following Trey yet, get on it. he is a man after God's own heart. @treyfreemanlsu
