Michelle and Barack were all smiles at the event, as it’s obvious they’re still in love after getting married in 1992! To celebrate their last anniversary in October, Michelle posted side-by-side photos of herself with the former POTUS, one recent and the other retrospective. “How it started vs how it goes,” she wrote in the caption. “Happy birthday, Barack, I love you!”
