Barack and Michelle Obama Celebrate 23 Years of Marriage
Yesterday the POTUS and the FLOTUS celebrated their 23rd Anniversary. And man was it cute. So to celebrate 23 years of being the most envied couple in the U.S. (ok, well technically they became that when Barrack became the president, but whatever). I’d like to showcase the cute things the couple has said. And admire their couple presence.
Because for me, they truly are #relationshipgoals
Barack: “Sometimes, when we’re lying together, I look at her and I feel dizzy with the realization that here is another distinct person from me, who has memories, origins, thoughts, feelings that are different from my own. That tension between familiarity and mystery meshes something strong between us. Even if one builds a life together based on trust, attentiveness and mutual support, I think that it’s important that a partner continues to surprise.”
Michelle: “One of the things that attracted me to Barack was his emotional honesty. Right off the bat he said what he felt. There are no games with him—he is who he appears to be. I feel fortunate as a woman to have a husband who loves me and shows me in every way.”
Barack: "And I would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend for the last 16 years ... the rock of our family, the love of my life, the nation's next first lady ... Michelle Obama."
Michelle: “When I first met Barack, we started dating, he had everything going for him...Yes, he was handsome--still is. I think so. He was charming, talented, and oh-so smart, truly. But that is not why I married him."
"What truly made me fall in love with Barack Obama was his character...It was his decency, his honesty, his compassion and conviction."
I can’t be the only one that thinks these two are presh.
So, to some of you new Vinglers following my Politi-Cool Collection. (And anyone else that loves this duo) I ask you a very important question...
