Long lost friends - getting back in touch

A message for your dearest friends
Me and Teruki have been recently covering the topic of "old friends". When we  were discussing friends we had lost touch with, Teruki told me about her childhood friend, Mariko, with whom she exchanged letters with regularly when she was younger, but has lost contact since. As a homework exercise I asked Teruki to write a letter getting back in touch with Mariko. Here is what she wrote:

Dear Mariko,
How have you been? It has been really long time since I met you last. What have you done? How about your family?... and Where do you live now?

I really enjoyed wrote you and I really looked forward to receive your letters, when I was teenager. We shared a lot of things about school life, friend ship and ourselves. Your letter was really exciting for me. I loved reading your letters.

Now, I live in Azumino with my husband, Takeshi. Takeshi is always busy as a director of a Art Museum, specialist of pictur books and a speaker. Takeshi and I opened a gallery restaurant in Matsumoto city with one of our friend. I have to care of the restaurant, so I am also busy recently. I have a lot of things I would like to tell you and hear from you.

I really hope to see you.

Your friend,
Teruki
