19 years!

Crikey, this photo will be 19 years old on Monday.

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama visited Restaurant Eve in Old Town Alexandria for an early celebration of their wedding anniversary tonight. I haven’t seen any photos yet, hopefully they got some privacy – those photographers have to be infuriating, and the blogs that post their pics 😕

See you all tomorrow 😉

    Congratulations to two very blessed individuals. Blessed because they found each other, and love manifested into a life of family and friends who they care about and who their friends (us included) care about. Two beautiful healthy daughters and a support network out of this world. Funny, I don’t envy Michelle, but I truly admire her and all of her favor from God. Michelle appears to be a good steward of all of God’s blessings. Through good times and bad they have weathered the storms and sun and are coming out the real winners. God continue to bless them always,

    Is it weird to have a crush on a couple? they are so awesome to watch. I hope to have a marriage that strong especially after all they’ve been through.

      Crush on this couple? No it’s not weird.

      But the “odd couple” down page? yes that would be weird. Hahaha.

    That song is beautiful by the way. Never heard it before.

      I love this video. I saw it a while back but thank you for posting it again. The song is just perfect and it brings tears to my sentimental eyes. God has truly blessed them with a beautiful love and it shows in everything they do together.

    Here’s another nice video to the tune of “something about us” by Clay Aiken:

      Thanks hopefruit2. Clay Aiken has such a beautiful voice….where did he go???? His voices lends tenderness to the video.

    • October 2, 2011 at 12:05 pm

      Thanks, Hopefruit. That was a beautiful combination of lyrics, voice and pictures! IMO the Obamas have brought love back into fashion in a ‘natural way’ for a lot of people. Watching the retirement speech of the joint chief of staff recently, General Mullen(?), when he blew a kiss to his wife it didn’t seem at all out of place or unnatural. [Unlike when Bill C was mouthing ‘I Love You’ to HRC during the 2008 campaign while she was giving a speech.]

      Thaanks Hopefruit2 for the lovely choice of music and photos. I think the orchestration of the song makes the thought of our POTUS and FLOTUS just light up the world with the sound and touch of love. Beautiful!!!!HZ

    Live long and strong Obama’s…….you are love and devotion personified, and we (America and the World) are blessed by it.

  27. October 2, 2011 at 3:10 am

    Happy 19th anniversary Barack and Michelle! You are just the most wonderful, caring, inspirational couple. God bless you both and may you have many, many more blessed years of love and partnership together.

    Words can not express how much I adore and admire the Obama’s not just because of their position as President and First Lady but because of who they are as people and because of the true and unabashed love they obviously have for each other, for their precious children and for America (and the world). We are SO blessed that they are in the White House and are an example to us all.

    My husband and I celebrated our 13th anniversary exactly a week before POTUS and FLOTUS and we are still as much in love as we ever were.

    I love seeing that photo of POTUS and FLOTUS on their wedding day. The look on both their faces say, “We’re in total bliss.” In fact, Obama’s own body language reflects the imagery he creates when describing his wedding day in the epilogue of his book “Dreams From My Father” (CD version of the book). Surrounded for the first time by both sides of his family–his mother’s family from America and his father’s family from Africa–made him feel like “the luckiest man in the world.”

    Happy Anniversary, President & Mrs. Obama!!!

    there must have been an agreement to not take ANY photos of last evening’s anniversary outing of the First Couple. the blackout appears to be effective because I have not seen any photos or video of the evening – and this is just what President Obama said he longed to have for just that one night

  33. October 2, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    What a beautiful picture,my husband and I will be happily married for 25 years on the 12th.(All you need is LOVE!All you need is love,love.Love is all you need,love is all you need to be this happy!

      Meant to say, loving President. The pain is so awful, so the clarity of the mind is a little off as well as the hands. I apologize.HZ
