Help with Grids Section of Smells Like Bakin'

Hi All:

I'm a newbie here and trying to work through the courses slowly and really absorb. I am definitely missing something here.

In the grids .css section of the Smells Like Bakin' site we are building, I am getting everything to match Nick's example exactly except I cannot, for the life of me, figure our why my "Get Bakin' With Us" Section will not move over to the right next to the "Inside the Kitchen" section.

I have combed over this so much, I am most likely missing something very simple. Any help would be very much appreciated. Here is my html coding.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
<title>Smells Like Bakin' Cupcake Company</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

First thing I noticed is that you are missing the closing quotes for your div class btn-small inside your div class grid_7

You must have the eyes of a hawk! I'm not sure how you noticed that so quickly, but I am hoping that with more and more practice, I can identify things quickly like that.

I added the quotes and the problem is fixed. Dave, thank you very much for your help!

No problem. You'll get there. Just always keep learning.
