home is where you hang your hat

Home is where you hang your hat is an idiom which expresses the notion that your home is anywhere you happen to be, rather than being overly nostalgic or sentimental about one house or place being your home. That you can make a home anywhere you happen to be, whether you have lived in the same house for 20 years, or you just moved into a studio apartment near your job; wherever you hang your hat is where your home ought to be.
