Lovers at lunch! 19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar helped break up the monotony of her husband Derick Dillard‘s workday, by joining him for a casual lunch on Wednesday, July 30.
“Lunch with my best friend at his workplace,” she wrote alongside an Instagram snap of the newlyweds, grinning together.
Dillard was dressed in business-casual attire: a blue button-down shirt with his employee ID attached to a Walmart lanyard. The former missionary joined Walmart back in February as a tax accountant, according to his LinkedIn page. Prior to that, Dillard worked as a missionary for two years. It was during that time when he and his future wife truly connected.
As the couple shared on their wedding website, Jill and her father Jim Bob visited her now-hubby in Nepal in November 2013. “I had no idea what to expect,” Dillard wrote, “but I was excited and prayed that God would give clear direction during this time.”
For Jill, that two-week trip abroad sealed the deal. “The more I spent time with him and observed his integrity, sweet spirit and love for God and service to others, the more I fell in love with him!” she wrote.
The couple shared their first kiss at their wedding on Saturday, June 21, and have been happily posting updates of their newlywed life in the subsequent weeks. On Wednesday, Dillard uploaded a snap with his wife and another family. “Dinner with friends last night,” he wrote.
Last Monday, July 21, Dillard shared another picture with Duggar on Instagram, celebrating their first month together as husband and wife. “Happy monthiversary to my amazing wife!” he gushed. “I love you so much sweetie! #bestmonthofmylife #manymoretocome #ilovemywife.”
