The News Minute | December 26, 2014 | 11:25 am IST  Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States, on Thursday wished Merry Christmas to millions of her supporters on Twitter with a simple post and a picture of her and President Barack Obama.  The photograph is of a younger and seemingly happy Barack and Michelle Obama, taken perhaps several Christmases ago.  Merry Christmas! pic.twitter.com/I7PDRF5fjJ — The First Lady (@FLOTUS) December 25, 2014 The two had met at Sidley and Austin, a corporate law firm in Chicago, where Michelle was asked to mentor Obama, who was then a summer associate. In 1991, when the couple had been dating for a couple of years, the two went to a fancy restaurant, where Michelle lectured 'him on the need to get serious in their relationship'. When the dessert came, there was an engagement ring inside it. "He said, 'That kind of shuts you up, doesn't it?' " Michelle Obama would say years later. A year later, the couple tied the knot.  That's the story of the one of the most influential couples in the world.  The FLOTUS Twitter account,  run by the Office of First Lady Michelle Obama, has on several occasions put out photographs of the Obama family from a time when the couple had begun their life together. These rare photographs give a glimpse into the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama before they would go on to become the President and the First Lady of the United States.  Here are a few of the pictures.   22 years. #HappyAnniversary pic.twitter.com/Avnjx3ixml — The First Lady (@FLOTUS) October 3, 2014 #HappyFathersDay, Barack!
