CAR & DRIVER
Following their November nuptials and subsequent European honeymoon, Ben and Jessa Duggar Seewald started settling into newlywed life – and a new house! The two moved into a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home in Springdale, Arkansas, just minutes away from Jessa's parents' home, filled with treasures from their family and their big day. But more than decorating, "I'm so happy I get to be married to this man and spend everyday with him," Jessa tells PEOPLE.

AT FIRST BITE
One perk of living together? Cooking for two, with an extra helping of love on the side. Recently, Ben cooked Jessa dinner, serving it with a note that read, "Your smile brightens my spirit like the first gleams of sunrise after a crisp autumn night in the Arkansas Ozarks."

A WALK TO REMEMBER
Wedding pictures, along with art created by their siblings (they have 24 total) fill the living room. But one thing you won't find there: a television, since Jessa grew up without. "We might get one eventually, to watch football games or a cooking show every now and then," Ben shares.

MORE THAN WORDS
Another item with a prominent spot in the home: The couple's bible. "We are looking at what we believe ourselves and doing a lot of studying about it," Ben, contemplating a career as a pastor, says. Adds Jessa, "Our faith is the core of our lives."

Knickknacks from their European honeymoon are on display, as well as some sketches Ben did (not pictured) that Jessa had framed. A chalkboard in the bedroom is where the couple leaves sweet messages for one another.

RISE & SHINE
Kids are something the couple has always talked about – specifically, adoption. "Even before we were married, we wanted to adopt," says Jessa. "If God blesses us with biological kids of our own, it's not going to quench our desire to adopt."

They made headlines for keeping their very first kiss private, but these days, there's lots of love to share. "I try to put myself in her shoes and really feel what she is feeling," Ben says. "I try to make that my perspective, that I'm here to help. If she's happy, I'm happy."
