Barack and Michelle Obama have been doing big things since they triumphantly exited the White House in early 2017. The couple just signed a deal to produce content for Netflix and, later this year, Michelle will debut her new memoir Becoming. In anticipation of her second book (her first, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America, a gardening guide, was published in 2012), Michelle is posting epic throwback photos on Instagram.

She also shared a photo from her Princeton days “in the early 1980s,” and described the experience of being a first-generation college student among mostly “white and well-to-do” Princeton undergrads.

All we can say: wow.

Bonus #tb: She shared this childhood photo on Mother’s Day to honor her mom, Marian Shields.

Michelle promised more incredible throwback images to come, and we’re assuming there will be many, since her book doesn’t drop until November 13th, 2018.

We love the throwback photos, and we can’t wait for her upcoming memoir, but our only question (or wish, really) is: when can we start chanting “Obama 2020”?
