Footer Problems

My code appears to be identical to the code in the video (though I'm probably wrong) but for some reason my footer is stuck between the primary and secondary sections. I've tried resizing the widths as well as adding margins. When on mobile (small width browser) everything is fine but when I stretch it out my footer pops up in between the two sections. Help?

That is exactly what I missed, thanks! Can you explain how that works to me?

footer {
    font-size: 0.75em;
    text-align: center;
    clear: both;   <------------- /*** did you miss this out? ***/
    padding-top: 50px;
    color: #ccc;

it somehow stops the footer from grouping together with the other elements if u have that declaration. without that declaration image or even paragraph will fit in to the spaces in between. which will cause them to cramp into a space which might not be the layout u want.
