Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard enjoyed their first Valentine's Day as a married couple last weekend. So how did Mr. and Mrs. Dillard celebrate the big day? Did he take her out for a fancy dinner and woo her with chocolates and roses?

No. But that doesn't mean the 19 Kids and Counting stars didn't find some romance in the holiday.

Both Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar Dillard took to Instagram to share glimpses into what makes their hearts beat strong for one another.

Derick captioned this first photo, 'Happy Valentine's Day from the Dillards! #love," and shared an open Bible on their bed, flanked by a tray with sparkling cider.

Jill Duggar chose a wedding photo to post for Valentine's Day, feeling that it best describes the love for her new husband and the life they've planned together.
