I am a 40-something European woman doing what I once thought wasn't possible: finding happiness after infertility. While it's been a long, difficult and emotional journey (10 unsuccessful IVF treatments), each day I take another step down the path toward a fulfilling new life. This is my story of reinvention. I will be happy to hear from you: klara.soncek (@ ) gmail.com

A beautiful afternoon in the forest
I took one afternoon off work and went to the beautiful forest to pick up delicious blueberries & strawberries. I even found some ripe cranberries already.
I should do this more often - taking time for doing something I enjoy deeply.
I was alone in the forest in the middle of Triglav National Park - this part has also some bears and wolves! I was completely alone, but I wasn't afraid - I was close to hiking trails.
I am sharing some photos with you since I know that many of you enjoy the beautiful photos from sLOVEnia <3
Another highlight: having a delicious blueberry&strawberry jam in the morning :)

A blank new page (A new blog!)
I have exciting news!
Lilly has decided to start writing her own blog.
Here is the blog:
I am looking forward to reading it.
PS: I have chosen a photo of Yosemite National Park since I know we both love it :)
PPS: I took the photo in 2014.

I had a lovely day in the mountains with my father today. After 20 years I reached 2000 meters+ again!!! I had no problem going up, but my knees weren't that happy with going down. But I still loved the 6-hour-hike.
I am attaching some of my favourite photos, taken today in the Julian Alps.
Guess what I am doing right now? Cooking my favourite blueberry jam.
Finding joy and meaning in life
Have you read Lilly's guestpost?
If you haven't, do read it, it is a beautiful post. And do leave a comment... it is so important for someone who has just started thinking writing her own blog. Comments mean to the writer of the blog that her thoughts are heard and that they matter.
I love all the comments that you left (and so did Lilly!!).
What I also loved was this 14-year-old post that Pamela attached in her comment. I don't remember reading it then. Since 14 years ago I was in the middle of IVF treatments and wasn't even thinking that this is actually possible that you end up without a baby (no matter how hard you try).
It is a beautiful post, do read it:
I love Pamela's conclusion of the post: "Finding joy and meaning in life is what I would have wanted my son or daughter to do."
