Your index.html, grid.css, and normalize.css files can all be in the same directory. Under the head in your html file, you will want to link your css files like so:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="grid.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

If you want to put your css files in a directory below your html file (for instance if you put your css files in a separate folder for organizational reasons), link them the way I showed you above, only change the href to "nameofyourdirectory/normalize.css" and "nameofyourdirectory/grid.css" respectively.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. took me a bit, but you helped!

Hi Jake,

If you linked them like this: <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css"> Then the files need to be in the css directory/folder below the directory/folder your index.html file.
