Meet the Blogger

Hi! My name is Chase. Welcome to my blog! I started The Bookend Diner in 2019 and have loved connecting with people all over the world through books and food. I’m 33 years old, a wife, dog mom and avid reader of all genres. I love to bake and experiment with new foods. I also love (reasonably priced) fashion, home decor and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I’m a mental health advocate and think we all need to take time to enjoy the things that bring us happiness.
