October 3rd marked the 25th wedding anniversary of former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle Obama. They may have departed the White House, but they will forever serve as beacons of hope during trying times, and as an inspiration to anyone who is in–or who wants to be in– a relationship. Because, man, do they love each other. Like, new-relationship, honeymoon-phase kind of love. And in any other couple, it might be easy to gag, but not these two. Nuh-uh. Barack and Michelle are the definition of #couplegoals.
Michelle tweeted out her anniversary wishes to her husband, and included a glorious pic from their wedding day.

Barack, on the other hand, decided to one-up his lady, because sometimes on an anniversary this huge, you have to go big.
Michelle was at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia when her sit-down with Shonda Rhimes was interrupted — by her husband.
Appearing on a big screen, Obama first apologized for “crashing” the conference, before launching into a loving tribute that brought tears to Michelle’s eyes. And ours. And yours. Basically, he said all the things any human wants to hear about themselves.
Barack called her “saintly,” “wonderful” and “patient.” He added that she’s “a great friend,” makes him laugh and sets the kind of example that their daughters, Malia and Sasha, not to mention the rest of the U.S., can be proud of. He also added that she still looks “so good” doing what she does, resulting in a blushing Michelle telling Shonda and the audience, “I better get home!”. Mm-hmm, get it, girl.
The former POTUS posted the video on Facebook, proving he still has game. And that caption (well, the second part of it) is everything. The man really does knows how to do things with flair.
Oh, how we miss them so. If the Obamas could please keep putting their love on display, that would be much appreciated by the rest of the world. May the next 25 years be filled with just as much love, laughter and sheer joy.
