Happy birthday to one of my favorite people in the world @elvisduran...as you can tell he makes me laugh juuuust a little bit 😏
Feeling that suuuuun, while trying to convince myself that it feels good #itssohot #literallymelting 😩☀️
That great feeling when you find a street in San Francisco that doesn’t require a deep breath and a full tank of water at the end 😬
I took a second today to really appreciate how great life would be if I had a hammock...but also to really try and figure out how my legs work
Crazy to think last year at this time we were filming #savingzoe 🙈 beyond excited for you guys to see it 😩
We’re getting there, Summer. We’re getting there ☀️
On Wednesdays, we wear pink 💞

Preparing for this week with Mr. Bear is really the only logical thing I can do
Bird’s-eye-view 🎮 took this one from a balcony in amazing @fairmontsanfrancisco - truly an oasis in the middle of downtown SF!
I was looking through my camera roll and found this gem taken in my parents’ study, which was taken the day before the AMAs...why I had so much makeup on the day beforeeee the AMAs, the world may never know
Only through travel can we know the places where we belong or not. What is a place you’ve been where you felt at home? Definitely had that feeling strolling down from Santa Monica to Venice beach
I think I see a slight tan line...it’s a summer miracle!
Nelson Mandela’s story reminds us that even in the darkest of times, change is always possible— but only if we're willing to work for it and fight for it. On the 100th anniversary of Madiba’s birth, let us honor his memory by recommitting ourselves to the work of his life.
Sunny with a chance of rain
Ready for some changes 😎
I missed you La 💗
Happy 7/11 daaaaay 🥤😏
Arrivedeci ❤️ (why we’re posing, nobody knows...but you should definitely zoom in)
It seems fitting that my 1000th post should go to something very important 😊 happy birthday to one of my favorite people on the planet! @rainydaychatter you make everyone around you ridiculously happy, so I hope today you have the happiest birthday of all time! You’re one of the most beautiful, hilarious, and fearless people I know, and I can’t wait to celebrate with you in person in a few weeks!! HAPPPPPY BIRTHDAAAAY!!!! Also, I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I have changed a lot since Austin and Ally, but honestly, I’m still that short, my hair just isn’t blonde anymore, and my front tooth grew in
Looking forward to my chat with Dr. Carla Hayden at the American Librarian Association opening session. We’ll be discussing my upcoming memoir, BECOMING – the manuscript is almost done! #BECOMING #ALAAC18
My father, Fraser Robinson, taught me to work hard, laugh often, and keep my word. Every day, I see @barackobama instilling those same values in our girls. #HappyFathersDay to dads everywhere who shape who we are - and who will always live on in our hearts.
To the first-gen students I met today and those across the country, I want you to know how incredibly proud I am of you. I know it wasn’t easy to get to this point, and I know you might be nervous about starting your college journey. But as a first-gen college student myself, I can promise that your education will open doors you never could have imagined. During my time at Princeton, I met so many amazing people, was exposed to all kinds of new ideas and experiences, and learned a lot about who I am and what I wanted to do in the world. So when you face challenges or obstacles, don’t get discouraged — ask for help. Experiencing failure and learning from it is an important part of the college experience, and there are so many people in your corner who are rooting for you and want to see you succeed. I’m one of them! I believe in you, and I cannot wait to see what you will achieve. #BetterMakeRoom
I’m thrilled to share with all of you the cover for BECOMING. The process of writing this book has been so personally meaningful and illuminating for me. As I prepare to share BECOMING this fall, I hope you’ll also think about your own story, and trust that it will help you become whoever you aspire to be. Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own. #BECOMING
Home has always been where our family is...It hasn’t mattered whether we’re lounging on a couch in Chicago’s Hyde Park or, as we are here, in the White House. We did our best to make the White House a comfortable place where our girls could climb trees and host slumber parties, where we’d have dinner together as a family, and where we tried to live by the values our parents instilled in us.
You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold. Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night. Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals. I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.
This is me at Princeton in the early 1980s. I know that being a first-generation college student can be scary, because it was scary for me. I was black and from a working-class neighborhood in Chicago, while Princeton’s student body was generally white and well-to-do. I’d never stood out in a crowd or a classroom because of the color of my skin before. But I found close friends and a mentor who gave me the confidence to be myself. Going to college is hard work, but every day I meet people whose lives have been profoundly changed by education, just as mine was. My advice to students is to be brave and stay with it. Congratulations to the Class of 2018! #ReachHigher
Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing some photos and memories from my book, BECOMING. My father, Fraser, taught me to work hard, laugh often, and keep my word. My mother, Marian, showed me how to think for myself and to use my voice. Together, in our cramped apartment on the South Side of Chicago, my family helped me see the value in our story, in my story, and in the larger story of our country.
I’m so inspired by the young people I met today from the South Side of Chicago, my hometown and the future site of the Obama Presidential Center. These high school seniors have big plans for college and beyond, and I’m so proud of each and every one of them.
It’s impossible for any picture to truly capture what my mother, Marian, has meant to me. Happy #MothersDay to all of the moms out there, and especially to my own.
If we want our daughters to dream big, we as women have to dig way down deep and figure out what fights are worth it for our kids. Thank you @USOWomen for convening so many amazing women (and men) - you are the changemakers who will make our girls’ dreams a reality. Your passion, courage and conviction fill me with so much hope for our future. #USOW2018
