“19 Kids & Counting” star Jill Duggar's honeymoon was apparently everything she had dreamed it would be. Jill and Derick Dillard got married recently, and on Wednesday People shared the scoop on their honeymoon. Just what did the couple do in the days following their nuptials?

Derick and Jill Dillard spent about a week in Kill Devil Hills, N.C. They rented a house on the beach, and it seems it was a blissful week. The “19 Kids & Counting” star says, “Everything about being married is awesome,” and she praises her hubby as being an amazing guy. She definitely is loving married life so far.

During the Dillard/Duggar honeymoon, the newly married couple relaxed on the beach and sat on the deck listening to the waves. They shared that they caught some fireworks and checked out some of the local sights. They toured both the Wright Brothers National Memorial as well as a lighthouse at Cape Hatteras Island, where they stopped and had a picnic as well.

Of course as “19 Kids & Counting” fans know, Jill and Derick waited to share their first kiss until after they said their wedding vows. Up until that point, the most they had done was side hug or hold hands. While many criticize the family's conservative views, it is clear that Jill and Derick are content with their decisions. Spending a quiet week together was probably the perfect opportunity for them to transition into married life together.

Now that Jill Duggar's honeymoon is over, she's working on getting the couple's home put together and she's officially changed her name to Jill Dillard. She's cooking for her hubby, and she said they've been spending as much time together as possible. Jill says that their house is not far from where Derick works, so she drops him off each morning and meets him for lunch. She looked practically giddy in a recent Instagram shot where she'd packed a lunch to share with her husband.

Fans of “19 Kids & Counting” are thrilled for Jill and Derick on their new marriage. It sounds like Jill Duggar's honeymoon is exactly what she dreamed of, and the two look very much in love in all of the pictures they have shared. The big wedding will be featured on a new episode of the Duggar family show when it returns with new episodes.
