@encoreperceptions Hi Mary,
When you buy a theme, they will normally tell you that you get free upgrades (It’s a very common selling point). If you are seeing the theme update within your administration screen, then you should get free updates.
When the updates aren’t free, they will normally put a link in your admin screen telling you to manually download and apply the update.
Please make sure you take a backup of your website before you update. This latest release (including 3.4.1) was released very smoothly, so very few people had troubles, but you should always play on the safe side. If your not sure how too, either contact your web developer, or search for a plugin that will run a backup of your system.
