Michelle Obama, the FLOTUS with the most-est, officially joined Instagram on Thursday with a photo and a video from her Senegal trip. We promise we’re not going to get all political on you in this post. Frankly, we’re just happy her first post wasn’t a picture of her lunch.
Anyway, Michelle’s first Instagram post was a photo of her posting with daughter Malia and a few other young ladies.
“My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women,” she captioned the photo.
After the photo, Michelle posted a video of female middle school students dancing at a school in Dakar, an apparent welcome ceremony. She has since published a few more photos from her trip and at least one other video as of this posting.
And if you were afraid that Michelle is just going to be a boring grown-up with this whole Instagram thing, a photo of the ominous “Door of No Return” on Goree Island tells me she’s catching on pretty quick.

Ok, nobody freak out, but @MichelleObama is on Instagram. This is the best day ever.

I know she has very little to do with it, but Michelle Obama’s Instagram is changing my life.
