Former US President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary Tuesday and Michelle marked the occasion by sharing a photo along with a beautiful caption.
The former first lady took to Twitter and posted a photo from their wedding day with the caption ‘Happy 25 anniversary. A quarter of a century later, you’re still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I (heart emoji) you.’
Michelle was able to beat her husband to the punch, but she may be making up for previous years when she forgot their anniversary all together.

The Obamas are celebrating their silver wedding anniversary. The couple has been eyeing a permanent move to New York City
The regularly affectionate Obamas were married on October 3, 1992, at Trinity United Church in Chicago and have two beautiful daughters together: Malia, who was born in 1998 and Sasha, born in 2001.
Back in 2012, just before the couple were to celebrate their 20th anniversary, Michelle, 51, revealed during a joint appearance with her husband on The View, that she forgot their first wedding anniversary.
‘Our first wedding anniversary, I totally forgot about it,’ she told the hosts. ‘I totally forgot!’
She added: ‘He asked me, ‘Well, what are we going to do on Saturday?’ And I go, ‘What’s Saturday?’ And it was our anniversary – I forgot.’

‘Cold,’ responded the President, jokingly.
Later in the appearance, however, Michelle gave a glowing review of her husband’s nature, calling him ‘romantic’.
‘He’s very loving, he’s very giving, he’s very open. He’s funny; I’m funnier. But we understand that,’ she joked.
It hasn’t been revealed yet if the couple made any special plans for their silver anniversary but they’ve taken some very meaningful trips this year.
The couple traveled to Massachusetts in August to drop their eldest daughter Malia off at Harvard. Obama described the emotional milestone to being like ‘open heart surgery.’
The family also made a pilgrimage to Indonesia in June, where Barack lived as child in the 1960’s after his mother Ann Dunham married second husband Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian man.

Barack and Michelle also may make New York City their permanent home as its been reported they are looking to buy an apartment in a historic Upper East Side apartment building in Manhattan inside of 10 Gracie Square.
There are currently four apartments for sale in the building, one of which is a penthouse where author Jean Stein and Carter Vanderbilt-Cooper jumped to their deaths.
Real estate insiders have speculated that this 10th floor apartment could be the Obamas’ new apartment.
The apartment is a duplex worth $10million designed by architect Daniel Romualdez.
It has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a library with a wood-burning fireplace and views of the East River and Queens.
