legends: january.

the book legends by john miller catalogs "women who have changed the world."  given to me as a gift 8 years ago, it inspired me to dedicate the last friday of every month's post to a different legend (in my humble opinion).

well i am embarrassed to admit that i missed not 1 but 2 whole months of legends posts.  blah blah the holidays excuses excuses.  well, no more i say!  this month i bring you the incomparable jane austen.


she has inspired countless women with her written words.      

her works have been interpreted in dozens of movie and television adaptations (hello colin firth as mr. darcy!).

her themes have influenced feminism, love, and society.

she is just as much a part of our culture today as she was in the 1800s, if not more so.

 jane austen is the epitome of a legend.  and that status isn't going away any time soon.
