Now this is a Throwback Thursday we can get behind! Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the matriarch and patriarch of the ever-growing Duggar family, shared a #TBT photo on their Facebook today, and it pretty much wins everything.
A very young Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stand innocently in the photo, fresh-faced, as Jim Bob explains below that this sweet snap goes back to their first date! Yep, this is an actual record of how the 19 Kids and Counting brood began.
"This #TBT goes back a few years. This was my first date with Michelle," Jim Bob wrote on The Duggar Family Facebook page. "She is as beautiful today as ever. I am very blessed to be married to my wife who every day exemplifies Proverbs 31!"
The reason they're so dressed up is because Michelle Duggar told TLC last year that for their first date Jim Bob took her to his high school's senior banquet. "On the evening of the banquet, he arrived at my parents' home to pick me up. And we went, and I just remember being very embarrassed because I didn't know him at all," she recalled. But all of that changed after the night was over. "I just knew right then that first evening after he left my home. I thought wow, this guy is different. I never met anyone like him... And I fell in love with him on that first date."
19 kids later, it's pretty clear that Jim Bob fell in love with her right away too!
