The Smiths theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework theme created for the bloggers who are into traveling. Are you the type of person who travels a lot and want a place to upload images of your trip and blog about them at the same time? This theme fits the bill. The homepage is not that fancy, just choose how many blog posts to display on the homepage and be sure to edit your featured images before uploading them.
