Oh joy Austenites! Today is the 200th anniversary of the publishing of "Pride and Prejudice"
What a joy this book has brought to my life. Not to mention the films, tv shows, "sequels" (good/bad), mugs, board games, dances/balls, etc. that have been inspired by this story.

I could gush and gush and gush about this all day but instead here are some of the deviations I enjoy around the site dedicated to this beloved novel:
If you know of any other amazing works based on Jane Austen's works or the Regency in general please share!
I thought about wearing my Regency costume to work today in celebration but thought that might be a bit much. This past weekend was the "Jane Austen Evening" so look for a little journal about that soon as well. In the meantime take advantage of National Hot Tea Month and this auspicious birthday and celebrate both occasions with a nice cuppa and some P&P!
