I have multiple stylesheets and so I wanted to keep these files in their own folder, but then I realized I also referred to images in the images folder in the root folder.

I had to refresh my memory on how to refer to a folder outside the file's folder, because I didn't want to create two folders named images.

They key to writing an image url to refer to an outside folder is to use the two dots before the blackslash.

background-image: url("../images/name.jpg");

NOTE: Must use 2 dots not 3.
