They say it has taken a lot of planning, but it's well worth it. "We've always traveled a lot on vacations and we'd come back and we would feel that something was missing," Kelly Lutz said.

She went on to add, "We knew that we weren't happy with our day-to-day routine in San Francisco and we were like 'why are we wishing away every single day of the week to get to the weekends?' We don't, we are just happy now."
