String formatting not working in challenge

Hi, I'm almost positive I have this correct, but it won't work. Is there something wrong with my code? Thanks!

name.py
name = "Emily"

treehouse = "Tree" + "house"

email_greeting = "{} loves {}".format(name, treehouse)

Sorry, I thought more details about where I was would be included. This is the Stage 2: Ins and Outs challenge for Python Basics. The question is:

"Finally, create a new variable named email_greeting that puts the treehouse variable and the name variable into the sentence "X loves Y" but with treehouse for X and name for Y. Don't forget your spacing!"

I've done it over and over and have no idea what they're looking for if it's not this. Thanks again!

You have your two values backward. The final string should be "Treehouse loves Emily" and you're currently producing "Emily loves Treehouse".
