Michelle Obama shares throwback family photo as she tells America goodbye

US First lady, Michelle Obama shared an adorable throwback of her husband, Barack Obama and their girls, Sasha and Malia as they prepare to leave the White House.

The soon to be former first lady, Michelle Obama wrote alongside the cute picture shared on Instagram today, January 11, 2016.

"So proud of POTUS and all that we've accomplished together. What an incredible journey filled with remarkable people. I love you Barack. -mo‎‎"

The shot has since garnered over 681, 000 likes, reposts and comments.

This comes after Barack Obama wiped away tears from his eyes as he paid tribute to his teenage daughters and to Michelle Obama, his "best friend," at the emotional close of a farewell message in his adoptive city of Chicago Tuesday.

"Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the south side, for the past 25 years, you have not only been my wife and mother of my children, you have been my best friend," Obama told the first lady, dressed all in black and seated before him.

"You took on a role you didn't ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor," he told her, at one point pulling out a handkerchief to dab away tears -- as the crowd of 18,000 cheered wildly.

"A new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You've made me proud. You've made the country proud."

The Obamas met in Chicago and their daughters were also  born there, and as the president put it in a Facebook post ahead of the speech,

"for Michelle and me, Chicago is where it all started."
