March 2, 1836. A day etched in Texas history. It’s the day Texas was declared a republic, despite the odds.

It’s Texas Independence Day.

That day Texas legends were born. Today, we honor those Texans, their independence and fortitude. We remember the Alamo. Remember Goliad. We celebrate the vision they fought so hard for and died to achieve.

I’m proud to be a Texan. And I’m sure you are, too, whether you were born here or got here as quickly as you could.

So, to celebrate that pride and our history, we recommend these classics. Here’s to another 182 years, Texas!

I love the smell of rain hitting hot red dirt, a sunset view from the porch and the melt-in-your-mouth taste of a piece of moist brisket. I love everything about Texas, plain and simple.
