I Survived the Great Texas Freeze Out of 2021

Just wanted to let you all know that I was offline last week, because I was participating (against my will) in living history. I live in Texas and as you may have heard, we had a few difficulties last week with an historic snow storm.

Just a Regular, Old History Buff

Hi there! Welcome to Sharing History! My name is Jenn and I am a marketing executive by day and a history blogger by night. I have a degree in history, but found a career in business quickly after graduating from college so I left the fun world of history behind while I was raising my two children and building my career.

During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, I found myself working from home full time and simultaneously helping my high school-aged son deal with remote learning. He was taking US History at the time and over the course of the pandemic, we also tackled a US Government class. This experience rekindled my love of history and inspired me to start this blog.
