French term or phrase: vivement
I'm thinking the phrase means "We anxiously await June."
I don't know for sure, but this sounds like a business thank you note.

Nous sommes tous bien rentres et garderons de ce séjour un immense sentiment de joie de travailler avec vous! ****vivement le mois de juin!****

En attendant ce jour je te souhaite de très belle fêtes de noël et une excellente année

Roll on June


Explanation:
Given the context, I would use a more formal translation here. "Roll on June!" would be my preference, which means that the person writing the note is eagerly awaiting this date. "Can't wait for" sounds a little too informal for a business note - a little liek a child would say "I can't wait for Christmas"!
