The Obamas are still getting invitations to weddings, and they’re still sending out responses.
On Monday, Twitter user @96_brooke showed off a letter that she and her mother had received from “the office of Barack and Michelle Obama” after her mother, Liz Whitlow, sent the former First Family a wedding invitation.
Even though the Obamas missed the wedding, they sent their best wishes to the happy couple: “Congratulations on your wedding. We hope that your marriage is blessed with love, laughter, and happiness and that your bond grows stronger with each passing year. This occasion marks the beginning of a lifelong partnership, and as you embark on this journey, know you have our very best for the many joys and adventures that lie ahead.”
The tweet prompted others to share letters that they had received from the Obamas as well. There were responses to everything from high school graduations to new babies, all of them sweet and wonderful.
While the Obamas were in the White House, apparently, they got invitations like this all the time. Usually, the Office of Presidential Correspondence, which sorts through 10,000 letters a day, would sort through them, but the president asked the officer to deliver a sample of 10 letters a day, according to the New York Times.
