Please dis-regard. I had the css folder in caps instead of lowercase to match the script.

That will do it. Glad you figured it out. Welcome to Treehouse!

Hi Trish, your files structure and code should look like this.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit | Designer</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
...
#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
  padding: 0 5%;
  background: orange;
}
