Sample Answer:

Dear Anna,

I hope you are doing great. I am sorry that I have not been in touch lately and honestly speaking during the last couple of weeks, I rarely had any time for me.  

I am very excited to let you know that I have moved to Denver a few days ago. As you know, I was expecting a promotion and last month our office administration promoted me to the Senior Manager position of their new branch in Denver. Therefore, I had to move to Denver which, in my opinion, is a great city to live in.

Situated in the South Platte River Valley, this modern city draws openness from the Great Plains to the east and features spectacular Rocky Mountain views to the west. I have rented a house in the northeast part of the city and it has a magnificent surrounding. The house I am living in has two bedroom rooms, a guest room, a large kitchen and a garden. I have planted a few flower-plant and can't wait to show you.

Please arrange some time and visit me sometime next month. I am sure we will enjoy our time.

Waiting to see you soon.

Warm wishes,
