Currently the site isn't much more than a glorified static site. I'm not really leveraging Laravel except to handle basic routing and html rendering. I have a plan to change that. In the mean time I have been playing around with cloudflare a bit on this project. I was pretty happy with the A rating on ssllabs. GTmetrix is also reporting a 0.8s load time and only 10 requests. Half of which are requests for google fonts. I might be able to cut that done by moving the import from css into html.
Thats really all for right now. Figure there will be a quite a few of these short updates until I get into the grove.
