Tried going back and forth. can someone lay this out for me. Maybe in future i will understand it better

Any hints would help or lay it out for me. I really think it is just the wording of all this.

name = "Robert"
treehouse = "Tree" + "house"
email_greeting = " treehouse + loves name "

Hi Robert

You're actually pretty close. The only thing you need to do differently is move the variables and plus symbols outside of the quotation marks otherwise these will also just be treated like the rest of the text/string (and make sure to add the appropriate spacing around the string).

So you should have something like:

email_greeting = treehouse + " loves " + name

Hope it helps!
