First lady Michelle Obama just got a little personal on Instagram, not to mention retro.

In a photo published for “Throwback Thursday,” the first lady posted a black-and-white picture of her and the president in their earlier years.

The first lady is looking straight into the camera, her arms wrapped around her husband's waist, her head tucked into his neck. The president is looking down, squinting from the sun, one hand on his hip, the other wrapped closely around his wife’s shoulder.

“Barack and Michelle. #ThrowbackThursday #TBT #NoFilter,” she writes in the photo's caption.

The first lady has made 27 posts on Instagram (@michelleobama) since making her debut last month to much acclaim with videos and photos taken during a week-long trip to Africa.

She had just under 300,000 followers as of Friday morning, but was following the accounts of only two others: The White House and the U.S. Interior Department.
