The Obamas paid tribute to each other on Valentine’s Day by sharing throwback pictures and sweet messages on Twitter.

Former President Barack Obama kicked things off Thursday afternoon, sharing a photo of him dancing with his wife at a White House party in 2010.

“Happy Valentine’s Day to the extraordinarily smart, beautiful, funny, one and only @MichelleObama. It’s true; she does get down to Motown,” he wrote.

Half-an-hour later, Michelle crafted a Valentine’s Day message of her own, alongside a picture of her family from the night in 2004 that her husband won a seat in the US Senate.

“So lucky to call these three my valentines for all these years,” Michelle wrote.
