Now that the Texts From Hillary meme is officially over
, the era of handwritten letters from Beyoncé has begun. Yesterday, the mother of Blue Ivy posted a letter
she had written to Michelle Obama on her tumblr
(i.e. the source of L Mag
managing editor Mike Conklin's "deep, deep depression"
upon "realizing how insanely boring [his] life is in comparison"), and gushed that she was proud to raise her daughter in a world with a role model like the first lady. The letter begins with Beezus praising Michelle Obama as "the ULTIMATE example of a strong African American woman" and gets much, much better from there. Read the note in its entirety below, and I dare you not to wear a gooey, "everything is going to be okay" smile on your face for the rest of the day. (Also, if this correspondence-from-female-public-figures-we-admire thing is going to continue, how do you guys feel about messenger pigeons from Fiona Apple? If anyone knows her publicist...)
