(Newser) – “A quarter of a century later, you’re still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know," Michelle Obama posted on Instagram along with a photo of her and Barack at their Oct. 3, 1992 wedding. People reports the Obamas celebrated their silver wedding anniversary and first since leaving the White House on Tuesday.

Barack responded to Michelle's post by "crashing" the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, where Michelle was speaking to Shonda Rhimes. "Not only have you been an extraordinary partner, not only have you been a great friend, somebody who could always make me laugh, somebody who would always make sure that I was following what I thought was right, but you have also been an example to our daughters and to the entire country," People quotes Barack as saying in a video message that played at the conference. A teary-eyed Michelle joked to the crowd: "I better get home." (Read more Michelle Obama stories.)
