nectarine blueberry galette

this is one I've been wanting to make for awhile. last summer I'd seen a blackberry nectarine galette somewhere and for the life of me, could not find the recipe when it came to making this one. so, I kind of just... went with it and made up my own recipe. it turned out better than expected. it was amazing, and sweet and tart, and buttery and oh so good. incredible to the last bite.
