Former First Lady Michelle Obama recently revealed what she cherishes most after her life in the White House, saying that it's "the small things" that makes her appreciate her life more after her husband former President Barack Obama's eight years of presidency.

Michelle Obama, while speaking to NBC's Today show on Thursday, said: "It’s opening up my door and walking out and enjoying the weather and sitting on my patio. It’s going to my girls’ game and just really being a mom," referring to the moment she enjoys now.

The former first lady, during the interview, also spoke about how she and her husband have managed life "out in the real world" nearly 21 months after leaving the White House. 

“One of the keys to a successful marriage is separate bathrooms. When he enters my bathroom sometimes I’m like, ‘Why are you in here?’ And he’s like, ‘I live here, can I enjoy my bathroom too?'” she said.



 

After months of being out of spotlight, Michelle has now begun making more public engagements. She also launched an education initiative on Thursday called the Global Girls Alliance, and she is set to embark on a 20-city tour in November to promote her upcoming memoir called 'Becoming,' according to reports.

While talking to the news network she said that her new book sheds light on her fears for her daughters in the early days of their eight-year stay in the White House.

"It took me several months in the White House before I could take a deep breath because I knew that this transition wasn’t gonna take them out,” she said. “I thought, what on earth are we doing to them?”

“They’ve spent the majority of their life in the international spotlight, with all the criticisms and the judgments. But they are down to earth, they are humble, they are normal. It has been a huge relief," the former first lady added.
