The former first lady couldn’t help but rave about her beau ahead of the couple’s anniversary. In May, She shared a throwback picture of the two from their wedding reception on Instagram.

“Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold. Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night,” she wrote. It’s a pastime the Obamas still love to indulge in, as they did at Beyonce and Jay Z’s “On the Run II” concert in July.

The mother of two continued: “Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals. I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.”
