"We were watching the parades on the streets after the wedding." 

"Everyone was just so happy. It was a great celebration."

Boudreau enjoys sharing an anniversary with the Jays, making parallels between her marriage and the game-winning homer.

"I think back on what happened — the homerun that Joe Carter had — 22 years later, looking at my life with my husband, we have three beautiful kids. It was such a good sign."
