Nate & Brook Herman

Nate spent his entire childhood outdoors in creeks, ponds, and woods. He never cared about his appearance and still to this day has trouble picking out matching clothes and keeping shoes on his feet. Brook is almost a complete opposite in every facet, but somehow God paired us together and our strengths and weaknesses and personalities compliment each other amazing! Everyone is still shocked to this day how Nate was able to marry so far out of his league.

Mae, Noah, and Drake are being raised with the perfect combination of mud, scrapes, and unconventional unstructured craziness of their father along with the healthy, organized and fashionable style of their mother. Never a boring moment around this household, watching the kids grow up and learn stuff about life is a super cool time of our lives. From the outside looking in, Brook is raising 3 small and 1 big kid...

Nate & Brook Herman Family

I am the middle child and rumor has it that I was a terror growing up to not just my siblings, but my teachers and babysitters and anyone who tried to tell me what to do. I grew up outside (as in I wasn’t allowed inside) and I strongly disliked bathing, matching clothes, combed hair, shoes, and anything that got in my way or expressed any signs of weakness or submission. To say I was strong willed would be a gross understatement. School to me was worse than any prison. I actually hated being there so much I really didn’t care to have any fun or make any friends, I just did my time and counted down the days till freedom.

My whole world changed though on one hot August day before my senior year of high school. I stepped out of a corn field and saw the most beautiful woman I had ever seen before step out of her little red convertible. It was one of those slow motion moments you see on tv and my jaw instantly became jello and paralyzed in a drooling dropped position. I had no intentions of ever wasting a dollar or a thought on a girl, but when the love bug hit, I couldn’t shake it. My plans of living in the mountains as a free man away from civilization were shattered.

I enlisted the help of my older sister's friends to buy shoes and new clothes and teach me how to treat a lady (man that stuff was expensive). The transformation took about a year, but got the job done! I traded in my carefree mountain man dream for an adventure in loving a woman and raising a family. Brook and I couldn’t be more opposite, but yet we complete each other amazingly. I guess you can say we are both on quite the adventure!

I am fortunate to be able to work outside, my favorite part of my job is creating fish and wildlife habitat on recreational properties. I love and am fascinated with everything about the ocean. I particularly enjoy deep sea fishing, deer hunting, camping, but most of all I enjoy teaching my kids about life and experiencing everything again through their eyes.

Brook Herman

Brook Herman

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and loved swim team, volleyball, track, and basketball. I didn’t love hunting, fishing, camping, or wildlife though. My senior year of high school I moved to Peoria, IL and that is where I met and fell in love with Nate. He has definitely opened up my eyes to a whole new world of fish and outdoor activities. I constantly get asked if I like to fish or hunt and to be honest I do enjoy those activities but really only with Nate and my boys.
