to look ahead with pleasure
to look forward to something
The thing I looked forward to the most when I was a child was going to school the day after getting new shoes or a new outfit. Getting new shoes or a new outfit was a big deal back in the 60's. It is something that happened maybe two or three times a year, usually coinciding with a birthday, the start of school, or Christmas. And occasionally, it happened when a neighbor delivered a bag of hand-me-downs. I would actually go to bed early in hopes of getting to the tomorrow more quickly.
Yes, I was even excited about this outfit, mainly because it was store bought.
My mother made almost all of our clothing, so this outfit was very special.
Too bad you cannot see the flared purple mini skirt and the very wide plaid belt.
I assure you that this was a 60's fashion statement.
I cannot say the same about the hair. My mother also was our beautician.
As a matter of fact, she was the family and neighborhood beautician.
Self-taught, I assure you.
