Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson: Look at Our Beautiful Home!
Since Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson married in early summer, even hardcore Duggar fans have only gotten glimpses into their life together.
Now, just in time for Christmas, the couple is showing off their beautiful home.
Take a look:
Right before the holidays, Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson finally gave fans a real look at their home.
(No, their RV adventure does not count)
On the couple’s shared Instagram account, they decided to give their fans a sneak peek at their home.
“I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas,” Josiah and Lauren wrote on their Instagram Stories.
With it, they featured a brief glimpse at their very tidy and extremely festive living room.
They definitely worked hard to strike a balance between humble and celebratory, and the results are remarkably tasteful.
Take a look:
The carpet looks simple but comfy and easy enough to vacuum.
The room’s furniture is a simple, understated gray.
Throw pillows decorate the couches, softening the visual impact of the furniture while providing some very practical comfort.
The neutral tones that permeate the room really allow the lights and colors of the Christmas tree to captivate your attention.
With the window blinds open, their house shares its festive light with the outside as well as those within.
Some Christmas trees get upstaged by a room’s decor, but there is no risk of that happening here.
Notably, the Christmas tree is not the only splash of green in the room.
Of particular notice — once you’re done staring at the Christmas tree, that is — is the wall’s centerpiece.
“Welcome to our happily ever after,” the sign proclaims.
To show how personal the sign is, and that it’s not just something that they picked up at Target, the sign continues.
“Josiah and Lauren,” the sign notes. “June 30, 2018.”
June 30, just barely over a week into the summer, was the couple’s wedding date.
For some married couples, a “happily ever after” declaration would be seen as very optimistic.
But the Duggar clan are not permitted to divorce. They really are bound to each other, for better or for worse.
Hopefully, they’ll always be as happy as they are now.
Josiah and Lauren are keeping quiet about pregnancy rumors that have followed them for months.
Though some say that Lauren all but confirmed the rumor, others remain deeply skeptical.
In fact, some fans are actively hoping that pregnancy rumors are nothing but hot air.
Several fans have commented on the couple’s posts, suggesting that Lauren is young, and that they hope that they’ll follow Jinger’s example.
If Lauren waits a couple of years before having a baby, she and Josiah can get to know each other.
It’s worth noting that their marriage is the first time that either of them have been truly free in their adult lives.
They should enjoy that time before they become parents.
There may be hope for the couple — because Josiah is known for being a bit of a rebel.
Some even believe that Josiah Duggar will be the first to break free from his fertility cult family.
He was previously seen as more rebellious than his siblings, and though Jim Bob controls the purse strings, that can only last for so long.
He and Lauren may decide to wait before having a child.
But Lauren may very well be pregnant right now.
Only time will tell which fans will be excited and which will be disappointed.
In the mean time, we’d settle for seeing the rest of their house!
