Today our First Lady Michelle Obama celebrates her 47th birthday. We've loved watching this Chicago native ever since she hit the world's stage alongside her husband, President Barack Obama. Since then she has awakened within all of us a sense of pride in being Black women, and in our children a sense of knowing that they can be anything they want to be. Today we celebrate this phenomenal mother, wife, daughter.   Join us in celebrating this joyous occasion by looking back at her life in pictures. Leave your birthday wishes below. And Take a Look at the First Lady's Daily Diary
