Journal With Me: Birthday Vlog!

In this episode of Journal With Me, I decided to take you along with me to celebrate my 27th birthday at Moraine State Park and Southern Tier Brewing Company!

Sam generously got me a GoPro Hero 6 Black for my birthday! It's kind of like a joint gift for him as well—he's an outdoorsy, athletic guy and he's wanted an action camera for a long time. I stuck the GoPro on a selfie stick and took it to Moraine State Park with Sam and the dogs. After a fun day of exploring the trails and wading in the lake, the dogs were very tired. We left them to sleep while we drank beers and ate appetizers at Southern Tier Brewing Company with some of my good friends.


Overall, it was the relaxed, casual birthday I wanted. To document it in my journal, I decided to sketch the scene from the dock to represent our hiking trip, and then a glass of my favorite beer, the blueberry tart ale, to represent the night out with friends. I hope to do more vlog and journal with me combination videos in the future. In the meantime, happy journaling!
