I was born and raised in the great state of TEXAS!! There is a pride that Texans have. Living in Texas is unique; it’s a way of life. Did you know that Texas used to be it’s own country? Did you know that the country, France, is as big as Texas? Did you also know that our state flag is the only flag that’s allowed to fly at the same height as the American flag? That’s an honor and a privilege we Texans embrace.
We don’t drive long Cadillacs with horns on the roof. We don’t ride horses to school. We don’t all live on ranches. You’d be surprised how diverse some of our cities are. I live just outside of Houston in a little town called Katy. If has that feel of being a small town but it’s just outside of this huge Houston metropolis that it brings you back to reality. Football is big in Texas; especially in Katy. GO TIGERS! haha
From the Rio Grande Valley to the Panhandle and through the hill country this state is large and exciting. Texans are good natured, fun loving, people. You’d be surprised when you visit how hospitable and respectful we are. Many people come from far and wide to visit. They tend to always want to bring boots back home with them as a souvenir. That makes me laugh because not all Texans wear boots either. As for dancing, we don’t do a lot of line dancing. I feel it’s necessary to get that cleared up. I LOVE country dancing but very rarely does it involve line dancing. There’s the Two-Step, the Polka, and various dances throughout Texas that you just kinda pick up. It’s like learning to Salsa and they show you the Meringue. Change the step and it’s another dance; we just don’t always have a name for it and sometimes you can just tell what part of Texas they’re from by the way they dance. I learned to Two-Step from my grandmother when I was young but when I grew older they didn’t dance the Two-Step the same way…I also grew up in San Antonio but moved to Houston later.
We are a strong state and I am so very proud to be here. I would love to visit a lot of places within the US but I just can’t imagine not living in Texas. It’s home.
