You're trying to do something more complicated than the challenge is asking you to do. It simply wants you to concatenate "Treehouse loves " with the name variable, and store it in the subject variable:

name = "Jamie"
subject = "Treehouse loves " + name

Your code will print out the correct string, but it won't actually be stored in the subject variable.
