This New Site

My old personal site was quite old, and needed a refresh. It was also on a PHP based CMS, and I am intentionally out of the PHP game. So I decided to build a new site from the ground up as an exercise. I recently built a blog platform in Nuxt(Vue) with an all AWS serverless backend, and that was a pretty cool project, so I thought about using that. I decided to go this route so I could get more React experience. I built a few things with React at the last company I worked for, but my day job is 100% Angular right now. I want to make sure I stay up to speed on the tech I like.
