Task 2 of Strings video

I am having trouble passing task 2 of the strings video. How do I make a new variable name subject and link it with (the + sign) and string "Treehouse loves" and my name variable?

strings.py
name = "Jessica"
subject = "Treehouse loves" + name

Ah, this is a tricky one. I believe you are simply missing a space after loves so it should be:

subject = "Treehouse loves " + name
