All good things must come to an end: most TV shows, fast food binges, and the fabulous reign of FLOTUS and Queen of Our Hearts Michelle Obama. 

Obama delivered her final speech as first lady on Friday at an event honoring the 2017 School Counselor of the Year, a ceremony that she introduced in 2015 to honor distinguished high-school counselors

The audience members weren't the only ones crying — FLOTUS herself got pretty emotional as she bid farewell to her adoring public. 


Throughout her speech, she echoed the values espoused throughout the Obama presidency.

Diversity, she reminded the audience, is "not a threat to who we are. It makes us who we are."

...Perhaps a sentiment directed at the upcoming administration?

"Lead by example," she told the young people in the audience, "with hope, never fear."

Yes, FLOTUS. 


We can expect a final address from her husband  (who we'll miss almost as much) President Barack Obama on January 10th in Chicago.

The Obamas will be vacating the White house in just two weeks. 

~Downs eight pints of ice cream and sobs~ 


You can watch her full speech below (about 17 minutes into the video).


We'll miss you, Michelle.
