There’s no doubt about it Barack and Michelle Obama are total #RelationshipGoals. As their tenure in the White House draws to an end *sobs* the President and First lady have posed for a super sweet cover of Essence magazine.
With their heads bowed together in genuine affection, if the romantic pictures don’t give you a lump in your throat, the accompanying interview discussing their time in the White House and the impact they hope they’ve had on the country certainly will.
“…I can unequivocally say that America is better off now than we were when we came into office. By almost every economic measure, we’re better off,” President Obama said. “But having said that, we still have a lot of work to do.”

Michelle Obama touched on what it means for black children to have seen a black family in the White House for eight years.
“I think when it comes to Black kids, it means something for them to have spent most of their life seeing the family in the White House look like them,” the First Lady said.
“It matters. All the future work that Barack talked about, I think over these last few years, we’ve kind of knocked the ceiling of limitation off the roofs of many young kids; imaginations of what’s possible for them.“

President Obama meanwhile talked about family time during his time in office.
"Some of my fondest memories of the White House are just being with the girls on a summer night and walking the dogs around the South Lawn,” he reflected. “Talking and listening to them, trying to get Bo to move because sometimes it’s hot.”
