Today’s photo was contributed by Andi Perullo of My Beautiful Adventures. She was in Buzios with her then-boyfriend on a romantic getaway.  Later that night he actually proposed to her!  So, not only was it the most magnificent sunset she’s ever seen, it was also the most magnificent night she’s ever experienced!
