One week in Aylmer


At the end of July, @margarita.quiring and I spent a week meandering our hometown of Aylmer before she left for a year of travel in Australia … and beyond. During the week, I shot a roll of black and white film documenting our time.

Before we made our way to Aylmer, we picked up a uHaul and loaded up her belongings to store at mommas while she’s gone.

We made a pitstop at our old high school. This week was about memories after all.

Raspberry Picking

Momma’s garden was in full bloom so we took advantage and enjoyed the fruits of her labour. Literally. I also gave her one of my hats, well, because, I want my brand to go international.

Ordering at a food truck

Aylmer has a new Thai food truck so naturally we had to investigate this big change in our small town.

Legends Bar and Grill, St. Thomas

One town over — St. Thomas — is home to Legends Bar & Grill, famous for their wings. Running down memory lane required us to stop by.

Packing Up

Packing up … deciding what to bring.
