Just because I am single on Valentine’s Day (and single in general) doesn’t mean I cannot appreciate the spectacle of true love when it presents itself in front of me in the form of Michelle LaVaughn Robinson and Barack Hussein Obama, the most famous winners of the cutest-couple contest that you have ever seen in your life.

The former president and first lady have been relatively quiet and low profile since leaving the White House, but fresh off a 10-day vacation in the British Virgin Islands, the couple, who have been married 23 years, took to their personal Twitter accounts to wish each other a happy Valentine’s Day.


Michelle tweeted a picture of a pair of feet, presumably belonging to her and her husband, with the caption “Happy Valentine’s Day to the love of my life and favorite island mate, @BarackObama. #valentines”

Barack tweeted a picture of his beautiful wife cozied up to him in the White House, a happy smile on her face, with the caption “Happy Valentine’s Day, @michelleobama! Almost 28 years with you, but it always feels new.”



They are so cute. Definitely #RelationshipGoals. #ValentineGoals #WeWishYouWereStillInTheWhiteHouse
