Our First Lady, Michelle Obama, is gracing the latest Vogue cover.  The issue contains a interview with her and President Obama. While the First Lady looks absolutely stunning, open the magazine and  you will read an interview that will remind you that her inner beauty is equally stunning.

It is no secret that the First Lady carries multiple roles. She executes such passion in everything that she does whether it is talking to children about being active or speaking before a graduating class of students. And yet no role is more important to her than her role as a wife and mother.

In the interview the description of the First Family shows you that they are creating their own path, one that works best for their family.

“What is truly unusual about the Obamas is that, in their own quietly determined way, they have insisted on living their lives on their terms: not as the First Family but as a family, first.”

The Obamas show us that you can still pursue your passions and have a career without compromising your family.

“Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole. You know, we have small kids; they’re growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, ‘Our number-one priority is making sure that our family is whole.’ ”

The President and the First Lady talk about their vision for America, their efforts to give their children a sense of normalcy, and even share how different their upbringing was — how different they are and the lessons they have learned from one another. The two of them are partners, something that is clearly visible in the context of an interview that gives a beautiful glimpse inside their lives. To read the interview visit Vogue Magazine.
