Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard Exchange Sappy Love Notes on 1st Anniversary (PHOTOS)

Get ready for some cuteness overload, because Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard just celebrated their one-year anniversary, and they took to Instagram to send adorable notes about how much they cherish each other.


Can you believe these two have been married for an entire year already? So much has happened in their lives since then, it hardly seems possible that they just shared their first kiss at the alter 12 months ago!

The 19 Kids and Counting stars took the opportunity to post sweet messages to each other on social media, and we couldn't help but melt a little at what they had to say.

Jill posted the above photo on Sunday, and wrote, "Happy anniversary to the man of my dreams! I can't believe it's already been a year since I had the privilege of saying 'I do!' The longer I'm married to you the more I fall in love, and realize how incredibly blessed I am to have you as my hubby. I'll love you forever!"

Derick also took the time to post a note to his lovely bride on their favorite social media site. He Instagrammed this amazing photo from their wedding day, and added a sweet note too.

Jill's hubby wrote, "One year ago today, I married my best friend. I love you with all my heart [Jill]. The last year has been the best of my life! I am beyond grateful to God to have the privilege of serving our Lord and Savior with you for the rest of my life. You are an amazing woman, wife, and mother. My love for you grows every day. Happy 1st anniversary."

He also included the scripture reference Proverbs 19:14, which reads, "Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord." Awww! While being called "prudent" might not be every girl's idea of a compliment, it's obvious in this context that Derick views Jill as a gift from God. That's all sorts of awesome.

Speaking of awesome, this weekend was a double reason for the couple to celebrate, as it was also Derick's first Father's Day. Baby Dilly, AKA Israel David Dillard, made his grand entrance into the world on April 6.

What a sweet little family!
