After perfectly embodying the role of FLOTUS for the past eight years with her intelligence, grace, and all-around badassery, Michelle Obama is ready for the next chapter of her life – starting with a well-deserved vacation.

But make no mistake, it likely won’t be long before the first lady is back in action: In an interview with the Washington Post, Obama’s longtime deputy chief of staff Melissa Winter delved deep into the first lady’s plans for the upcoming years, and it should come as no surprise that she intends to keep hustling just as much as ever.

As Winter explains, Obama fully intends to continue her advocacy work from her years in the White House, and after settling in to her family’s new home in D.C. – where they will stay for the next two years, until Sasha Obama is done with high school – she plans to rent out office space and work with a small staff, led by Winter, to do just that. But again, this will only happen after Obama has taken some time to readjust to being a private citizen again.

“When she’s ready, our group will come together, and we’ll do strategy,” Winter told the Washington Post.” And we’ll talk about what does the first event for the new Michelle Obama look like. How do we want it to feel, and how does she want it to feel?”

Meanwhile, Obama will have plenty on her plate to keep her busy, including a memoir in the works, which the publication reports will likely get a multimillion dollar advance.
