President Obama and Michelle Obama still have two months left in the White House, and yet somehow we already miss them terribly.

The much-adored couple celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary on Oct. 3, and by the looks of it, are still very much in love. Their story began at a Chicago law firm in 1989. With much persistence, Barack eventually convinced Michelle ― his adviser at the time ― to go out with him despite her initial hesitation. That led to a first date and a first kiss; The rest, as they say, is history.

Below, 34 romantic moments between POTUS and FLOTUS through the years.

“I was moving around trying to capture different scenes away from the stage during an event to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the Selma to Montgomery civil rights marches. When I glanced back towards the stage, I noticed the president and first lady holding hands as they listened to the remarks of Rep. John Lewis. I managed to squeeze off a couple of frames before they began to applaud, and the moment was gone.” —
