summertime & the living is easy…




On Saturday night, Bob and I were looking to find the MIHO Gastrotruck, and to our surprise and delight, we can across this super cute event, Summertime and the Living is Easy located in the parking lot behind the newly opened Casa Atrelexia shop. Complete with food, popsicles, a DJ, summer movies, and super fun decor, our night on the hunt for a food truck turned into an unexpected treat.



The decor was festive and colorful complete with baskets of flowers, stacks of hay, and solid pops of yellow, pink, and red throughout.




Sitting in a Tree transformed this parking lot into a Mexican-inspired summer picnic in the country. We had a great time and left with our bellies full of MIHO snacks, {see more about the food at Oh Joy Eats}, Viva Pops's cool treats, and a much more festive evening that we had anticipated!

  1. Thank you for the awesome write-up. I am one of your daily readers and was so excited to see and meet you at our event! What an unexpected surprise for us! Thanks again!

  2. Oh my gosh. I live in San Diego and I’m actually feeling physical pain that I missed this event!! My heart!
    The photos are gorgeous. I will certainly follow Sittinginatree’s blog from now on so I don’t miss a single thing in the future! 🙂
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. those girls are the bees knees, and miho is pure deliciousness! so happy they are bringing all of that life, color and yumminess to san diego (and so bummed that i couldn’t be there to experience it firsthand!)

  4. What a sweet event! The pops of color in the flowers and chairs are awesome and so summery. I’ll be on the lookout for this truck throughout San Diego! Does anyone know if they post a schedule of where they’ll be?

  5. Thanks for posting this! We’re visiting family in San Diego soon and will have to stop by that truck! Looks so good!

  6. Amazing, wonderful, gorgeous San Diego summer evening– I was visiting from out of town, and I LOVED this event. So impressed that probably at least 250 people were in line for the incredibly tasty food from MihoGastrotruck. And the decorations from Sitting in a Tree Events lady Tori were beyond clever! Great evening, great people, great location!

  7. Hello Joy!
    Thank you for sharing this lovely event. I fell in love at first sight.
    I wanted to share that those flower pots (like the one in the last photo) are also baskets for your bicycle. I saw them in a window display the afternoon after seeing your post. xo
