Sample Answer:

Dear Sarah,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am very glad that you are having a wonderful vacation and I hope you will bring me some souvenirs.

As you may know, my birthday is on 21 of July and I usually have a birthday party. However, this year because of some personal issues which I had, I could not hold a party. So, instead of my birthday party, I have decided to celebrate our anniversary on 1th of August.  I have already made a reservation at Grand Hotel and would be glad if you could come to my party.

Let me update you with some happy news which occurred at our office. Fortunately, last week CEO announced that he totally agrees to decrease working hours. Besides, they decided to open a nursery in the same block which will be convenient for parents like you. Last but not least, our monthly meeting was postponed until September since some of our colleagues are on vacation.

I hope to see you soon. Have a nice stay and safe return.
