Essence magazine’s special edition featuring the 12 loving pictures of US president Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama has caught the frenzy of social media. These romantic mood pics show Obama couples, fondly called FLOTUS and POTUS holding hands and looking into each others eyes against the sun light from the grandeur of White House’s spacious interiors.

The Obama’s will finally bid adieu to White House this January after being there eight-long years. Michelle quipped about leaving White House:
“Well, the honest answer is I have no idea, just like I had no idea what my life would be like living in the White House.”
But, she said she long for leading a simple and anonymous life here after.
“My hopes are that we recapture some everydayness, some anonymity. And we know that will take some time.”
She added, “But I always joke that I dream of opening up my front door and walking out without any notification, without any security,” continued.

The Obamas will be finally settling into their sprawling 8,200 square-feet new home in Washington after retirement.
Their new home has eight bedrooms which was purchased for $USD5 million in May 2014. It has a nine-and-a half bedroom manor, said sources.
It will house the Obama family for next one year, until Malia may move out of home to pursue her studies in Harvard.
Here are some Twitter reactions to the pics:
