May 17, 2015: It seemed like an ordinary, overcast Sunday in the Teanaway, one of Jared and Suzanne's favorite places to play. Jared, Suzanne, and Domino headed for a scramble of Teanaway Peak, a new one for all three of them. After a pleasant hike, they had lunch just below the summit. Afterwards, Suzanne snapped a few photos from the very top and Jared followed. He had something up his sleeve -- or rather, in his pocket.
Before he popped the traditional question, Jared shared a story about how his grandfather proposed to his grandmother. Grandpa Frank didn't have the money for a ring, so he instead slipped a cigar band on her finger.
Jared, always prepared, brought his own cigar. But, thanks to modern advances in glue, this cigar's band wouldn't budge. So they instead lit it up via Suzanne's stash of emergency matches (10 Essentials FTW) and happily (and dizzily) puffed to their future together.
