Michelle and Barack Obama are ready for 2022!

On Saturday, the former first lady, 57, uploaded a snapshot on Instagram of herself and husband Barack, 60, ringing in the new year.

In the sweet photograph, the married duo rocks festive 2022-themed eyewear while coordinating in black ensembles.

"Happy New Year from me and my boo! 🎉🥳 ," Michelle captioned the pic of the couple. "Wishing you all a year filled with happiness, love, and good health."

In the comments section, supporters shared their love for the holiday photo. "OMG I LOVE Y'ALL!" wrote one user as another said, "Fabulous! #BlackLove." Added one more: "Endless love 💕."

Michelle's New Year's Day snapshot came a week after she and her politician husband enjoyed their annual sunny holiday stay in Hawaii for Christmas.

At the time, Barack was photographed swimming in the Pacific Ocean, while his two daughters — 23-year-old Malia and 20-year-old Sasha — were spotted nearby, relaxing on stand-up paddleboards.

The trip marked a continuation of a decades-long family tradition of celebrating the holiday in the place where the former president grew up.

Barack was raised in the Aloha State for most of his childhood, moving to Los Angeles after high school. He eventually finished his studies at Columbia University in New York City and, later, Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
