Stylin' and profilin' #thisiscrazylove2016

If there is one thing I enjoy more than anything in this world it is laughter. The spasms of core muscles, the sounds of cackling, the lack of breath, all of it. I love to laugh. When I find someone able to make me laugh I want to be around them as much as humanly possible.

***This is crazy, a person a day for the whole year of 2016 to show love and appreciation to on social media. It may be someone in my everyday life or someone I may not have spoken to in years. Feel free to jump into this craziness with me and start today. It’s never too late. Check out the rest of the crazies participating by tapping or clicking the hashtag. - Tyler Merritt

I know people who are funny. They all approach their brand of humor in different ways. Some will sit silently as they judge the humor being delivered. Others will remark on why a specific joke worked or didn’t.


Me, I just like to laugh.


So today I treat a friend who’s sense of humor and level of wit are like few I’ve ever met. Today I give #thisiscrazylove2016 to Noah Barone.


I met Noah several years ago.  Being the nephew of my friend Susan I got to know him over at her and Sonya’s house during one of their many family gatherings.
Upon first glance with Noah it is hard to not notice his sense of fashion. A young man with the guts and chutzpah to wear the brightest of colors, all of them, together. His clothing seems to say, there’s a party in my mind and I thought you’d like to see some of it.

Thing is, with all the bright colors, one might assume the looks wouldn’t work. They do. He carry’s them off with style and ease.
Noah plays the humor element very smartly though. I don’t know if he knows it is such a big deal to me to laugh but his soft spoken nature causes me to lean in hear his every word. Which is only to my detriment in the category of humor slayer.
All of this to say nothing about his epic taste in music, his appreciation of comic books and his way with the ladies… I’ll stop that one there. His mother might be reading and I’d rather not get the dude in trouble;)

 Not just anyone can pull off these socks and shoes... but with the pants, I'm saying Noah is the ONLY one who can do it.

Each week Noah’s mother posts his Tuesday wardrobe and I am for another week inspired after seeing what incredible concoction he’s pulled together for the the day.
Noah also has been dealing with a health condition since 2007. You can keep up with his progress, inspiration and the gofundme account here!

 These people are some of my favorites.

Some days are tough. You know this. We all have those days when things just don't seem to go the way you wanted them to go. Then, on top of all that it rains. Those are the days when Facebook reaches into your soul and gives you the gift of joy. In my world that joy comes in the form of Noah Barone. 

 I simply dare you to try to pull this off. Go ahead, try. You will fail. He's a one of a kind!

Today, because he brings me out of the doldrums, I give my #thisiscrazylove2016 to Noah Barone.
