The first holiday you share as a new married couple is always special, isn't it? Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard got super lucky because the Fourth of July is one heck of a fun one and they get to call it their first official married holiday!
The 19 Kids and Counting star, who got hitched to Derick and had her very first kiss on June 21, seems to have gotten the hang of this whole smooching thing. Jill posted some sweet pictures on Instagram of her first Independence Day with her new hubby, which include one adorable kissy photo and an up-close and personal shot of their wedding rings.
Jill, 23, and Derick, 25, color coordinated in -- what else? -- red, white and blue as they appeared to be enjoying a day out at a backyard BBQ:
Oh ... my ... goodness -- cute! Are these two perfect for another, or what? They look so in love and, like I said, seem to have gotten over that kissing challenge with NO problem. Alongside this photo, Jill wrote: "Happy Independence Day! So grateful for our Godly founding fathers! #4thofjuly #jilldillard #derickdillard #independenceday #19kidsandcounting"
And then we got to enjoy this photo of their wedding/engagement rings, which Jill posted with the message, ""Chacos for the 4th!" #weddingrings #chacos #jilldillard #derickdillard #independenceday:"
I LOVE the simple elegance of Jill's sparkling diamond solitaire. She didn't go for anything too flashy, which wouldn't suit her personality. Also love the fact that their wedding bands are unadorned -- and his appears to be a darker, more masculine platinum.
Jill and Derick really seem to be enjoying their newlywed days and we can't wait to see more photos of them soaking up the summer sunshine and announcing her pregnancy. Oh, come on -- you know that's happening sooner rather than later, right?!
What do you think of Jill and Derick's Fourth of July pictures and of their wedding rings?
