On October 3, Michelle and President Barack Obama will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. But this election season’s first Presidential debate has thrown a major wrench in any celebratory plans – it’ll take place that very night in Denver, CO.
“I learned yesterday – just yesterday [of the date]. I was like really, really? The first presidential debate is on my 20th anniversary?” the First Lady told Access Hollywood. But she’s taking it in stride: “All I said was, ‘At least we’ll be together.'”
The couple, currently campaigning separately, will meet up in Denver for the debate and celebrate in their own way.
“I’ll see him right before and I’ll watch him on stage,” she said. “I’ll give him a kiss after the debates and [say], ‘Happy Anniversary.’
“I’m going to make him write it on his hand. ‘Love you, honey’ so that when he waves, it makes ‘I love you honey,'” she added.
