It’s all too easy to get swept up in our busy lives and forget to stop and absorb the beauty that surrounds us. Sometimes, we fail to appreciate a breathtaking skyline or a sunlit, open field. Last week, we asked you to submit images from your hometowns, and this edition of TODAY’s Life Illustrated captures some of the beautiful scenery of our own streets and neighborhoods that we may sometime overlook or take for granted in our everyday hustle and bustle. Take a minute and enjoy these images shared by your fellow TODAY.com users.
