texas flag I'm raising my baby in DC, but I myself am a Texas baby through and through. And believe it or not, I'm just one of thousands of displaced Texans living here. (Nope, we're not all Bush entourage, either.) It's good to know there are organizations in Washington where we expatriates can connect. As well as cyber-versions of our favorite places back home. Here are some of my favorite links. Enjoy the virtual waltz across the Lone Star State!
