First and foremost, from the Sweat family — my husband, Mike, my son, Joey, our golden retriever, Sandy, and I — Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your loved ones. Enjoy your dinner today, no matter where you eat or what you have.
I love people.
Both of my parents loved people. My dad used to embarrass my sister and me when, no matter where we went, he would walk up to people and say, "Where you from?" which led to a long conversation, By the end of it we felt like they were our good friends. I am very much like that.
