"So thankful for this beautiful care package from our amazing @FLOTUS! These fresh veggies from the White House Kitchen Garden were such a wonderful — and delicious — surprise. Love you, Jill!" Michelle captioned the basket of the leafy greens.
"For eight years, I saw Dr. Jill Biden do what a lot of professional women do—successfully manage more than one responsibility at a time, from her teaching duties to her official obligations in the White House to her roles as a mother, wife, and friend," Michelle wrote at the time.
She went on to call Jill a "better example" that those who attempted to discredit her accomplishments.
"She will be a terrific role model not just for young girls but for all of us, wearing her accomplishments with grace, good humor, and yes, pride," Michelle wrote. "I’m thrilled that the world will see what I have come to know — a brilliant woman who has distinguished herself in her profession and with the life she lives every day, always seeking to lift others up, rather than tearing them down."
