Hello! My name is Ilona (pronounced e-low-na) and I live in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. I work part time as an office manager at a small Christian church. I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and while it will always have a special place in my heart, Albuquerque is now home! My husband, Dennis (also known as Star-lord), and I have been married 29 years. We have a grown daughter, Marena, who lives close by. Around here, we affectionately refer to our city as the “Q” – hence the name of my website and blog: The Q and I. In addition to writing about Albuquerque and why I love my adopted hometown, I like to write movie reviews, talk about five favorites on Fridays, and share my thoughts on a variety of things. And since my dog is such a big part of my life and so completely photogenic, I will share pics of my awesome buddy, Maxwell. Max has his own Facebook page if you want to check it out: Maxwell Smart the Jack Russell Terrier
Thank you for visiting with me. I hope you will come back soon!
