On January 17, 1964, the world was unknowingly blessed with a gift in the form of an incredible woman. This woman not only dominated her academic studies and rose to the top of her career, but she also became the best first lady this country has ever seen.
Today, in celebration of Michelle Obama's 54th birthday, her husband Barack Obama delivered a heartfelt message accompanied with a romantic gift.
"Thank you @BarackObama for the beautiful flowers waiting for me in the office this morning. You’re my best friend, biggest fan, and getting notes and flowers from you will never get old," she wrote.
"And to the many people from around the country who sent cards and posted on social media, you have no idea how much we love hearing from you. I know birthdays can sometimes be bittersweet (54!), but your messages of hope, generosity, and warmth have always reminded me how lucky and blessed we are."
"You're not only my wife and the mother of my children, you're my best friend," the former POTUS wrote.
"I love your strength, your grace, and your determination. And I love you more each day. Happy Birthday, @MichelleObama"
