Jill Duggar Dillard and her new hubby Derick Dillard are living a life of newlywed perfection--at least that's what 19 Kids and Counting's Michelle Duggar hints at on the family website. She recently gushed about how happy her daughter and new son-in-law are, and how proud she is of their accomplishments, in her blog.

"It's just so sweet to watch these guys and girls that are really in love," Michelle wrote. "Love is in the air and it's good for all of us to be around that, even if the little siblings have to go, 'Oh no, they're kissing again, oh my!"

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard didn't kiss until their wedding day--just like sister Jessa Duggar and her new husband Ben Seewald, who tied the knot on November 1st--and they didn't hold hands until they were engaged. These are two of the rules of courtship as defined by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar for all of their children--and so far it appears to have served everyone well.

"I know God's going to use that love to help stretch in ways that they might not otherwise try, because that's the good thing about marriage. It really does stretch us and helps us to become the person that God would want us to be," Michelle Duggar shares. "You're much more willing to get out of your comfort zone when it's with somebody that you deeply love."

Michelle admits to missing Jill, now that she lives in her own home.

"I think it's been a very smooth transition for Jill and Derick," she explained. "She's got her house set up and she's already had company over. It's so sweet to see them starting their lives and their family together."

And like any good mom, she makes sure to include the newlyweds in everything the 19 Kids and Counting family does at home.

"We always make sure to include them in our family events in case they want to be a part of things," Michelle says. "They'll come over and celebrate birthdays and other events with us when they can."

"It was truly the joy of her life to marry Derick and they both feel so blessed to have each other," she added. "They are just really, really happy to be married and enjoying married life."

It shouldn't be too long before Michelle Duggar updates her blog and includes tidbits about married life for daughter Jessa Duggar. She and Ben Seewald recently enjoyed their honeymoon at an undisclosed location, but are likely back in the fold with a new life of their own about to begin. Jill Duggar Dillard and her hubby are planning for their baby--and even the preparations for that will be huge news for Michelle to report.
