Michelle Obama celebrates love-filled day with sweet post dedicated to 'my valentines'
Michelle Obama proves that Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate all kinds of love as she shared a photo of her three Valentine's dates on Instagram.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has always been proud of her family, and this Valentine's was no different. She shared two photos of her with her husband, former President Barack Obama, and their two daughters, Sasha and Malia. On her caption, she wrote how lucky she is to have the three of them be her Valentine's dates all these years.
The "Becoming" author is one of the most influential women in America, and her posts have been inspiring for people to emulate the type of mother and wife she is to her family. Instead of seeing Valentine's Day as solely a day to celebrate with a significant other, she shows another side of the special day, which is spending it with all your loved ones instead, since it is a day for love – any type of love.
Of course, former POTUS himself shared a photo of Michelle on social media, introducing her as an "extraordinarily smart, beautiful, and funny" woman. He finished his caption by proving what Michelle said last week at the Grammy Awards, where she said she "wore out" Motown records while growing up in Chicago.
"It's true; she does get down to Motown."
Barack and Michelle express their love for one another as much as they can, be it on birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and even special days like Valentine's Day. They use these occasions to show their love off to people on social media, sharing their thoughts about how special each other are.
Barack and Michelle first met when they worked at the law firm Sidney Austin LLP, where she was tasked to mentor him while he was a summer associate. Although Michelle initially wanted to focus on her career, they ended up dating and wed on October 3, 1992. They share two children together, Malia and Sasha, whom they conceived through the process of in vitro fertilization.
