Michelle Obama's Twitter Farewell: 'Being Your First Lady Has Been the Honor of a Lifetime'

With just hours remaining until Michelle Obama goes from being first lady to mere mortal, she took to her social media accounts Wednesday to bid adieu to her soon-to-be former life.

“Being your First Lady has been the honor of a lifetime. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. -mo,” the first lady wrote on her Twitter and Instagram accounts alongside a photo of her and the president with their arms around each other. Shot from behind, the first couple are looking toward the Washington Monument from a White House balcony.

Prior to posting the photo of her and the president, Michelle Obama tweeted a 30-second video of herself taking one last stroll through the White House with the first pooches, Bo and Sunny.

“Taking it in on one last walk through the People’s House,” reads the tweet.

The trio begin their stroll in the Cross Hall, and meander through the South Portico side of the first floor, then to the East Room, Green Room, Blue Room and Red Room,

White House photographer Pete Souza also took to his Instagram account Wednesday, posting a photo of the president giving his final press conference before leaving office. In the photo, Obama is seen waving to the pool of reporters. “Waving goodbye at the conclusion of his last press conference as President earlier today,” Souza wrote.

Blogging is something that I love and am extremely passionate about, but it also healthily pushes me outside my comfort zone. Just last week I did a 30-minute live video broadcast on social media tips in a Facebook group that I’m a co-founder/admin of. Now today, I am in the process of working with an awesome company, but in order to get my partnership moving I have to call the CEO of the company to process my order.

Just wow. I am uncomfortable, but this is the good kind of being uncomfortable. God wasn’t kidding when He put the word “bold” on my heart to be my word of the year, haha.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
